B.1 Purpose of Leave

Leave for up to 12 weeks may be granted to eligible employees who are covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) with job protected leave for qualifying reasons such as:

  • For incapacity due to pregnancy, prenatal medical care of child birth;
  • To care for the employee’s child after birth or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee’s spouse, qualified domestic partner, son, daughter, or parent who has a serious health condition.

Leave for up to six months may be granted for a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee’s job. Extensions beyond six months may be granted within the sole discretion of the College.
