Please see the complete Family and Medical & Parental Leave policy for more information on how these leaves work.

  • Family Medical Leave - The FMLA entitles eligible full-time and part-time employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.
  • Paid Parental Leave – Paid Parental Leave entitles eligible full-time employees who qualify up to 8 weeks of paid parental leave for the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a new child. Approved paid parental leave will run concurrently with FMLA qualified employees.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.

Any employee needing an accommodation to perform the essential functions of their job or attend a college-sponsored event should contact the HR ADA Coordinator, Meredith John, to start the interactive process.

Please see ADA Accommodation on the Forms page for application and certifications forms.
