Benefits during FMLA leave

If your leave is covered by FMLA, the University will continue to pay its employer portion of your health insurance. You will still be responsible for any portion of your benefits that you normally pay.

Benefits when FMLA leave is exhausted

Once your 12 weeks of FMLA is exhausted, if you are going to be absent from work for a full calendar month,  you must remain in pay status for at least eight hours that month in order for the University to continue paying its portion of your health insurance.

To remain in pay status, you must do one of the following:

  • Work at least eight hours
  • Use at least eight hours of accrued leave (sick, annual, or discretionary leave; compensatory time; or personal holiday)
