The College of Letter and Science updated the policy related to FMLA. This document contains the memo from the College dated October 23, 2014.
L&S Policy on FMLA
Use of sick leave following the birth or adoption of a child.
Faculty eligible under one or more of these policies may use accrued sick leave to cover leave time. When faculty members are absent from campus and not engaged in teaching, research or service, they use one sick day per day of leave; five sick days for a full week. When faculty are excused from only some duties, leave should be calculated based on faculty assignments of 40% for teaching (for 2 courses per semester), 40% for research, and 20% for service. Thus, when faculty members are absent from teaching only, and continue to engage in research and service, faculty with the typical 2 course-per-semester load should use sick leave equivalent to 40% of the period missed.
