Leaves of Absence

Learn about the leaves of absence provided by UCSD that enable employees to meet individual needs.

Maternity, paternal, family medical leave (FMLA), military, and medical leave are some of the options covered by UC leave policies and collective bargaining agreements.

Examples of leaves include:

  • Employees disabled from work due to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions are entitled to a leave of absence upon request not to exceed 4 months.
  • Employees who request an extended leave due to a personal illness or illness of the employee's child, spouse, same or opposite-sex domestic partner, or parent are granted a leave of absence. Family and medical leave includes, for example:
    • A serious health condition of the employee, the employee's child, spouse, same or opposite-sex domestic partner, or parent
    • Bonding with a newborn, adopted, or foster care child
