Faculty and Staff: For Your Benefit

HR Staff Policy Update Series

Human Resources has issued the Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) policy to serve as the framework for employees wishing to take a leave of absence for certain qualifying events under the FMLA. This policy provides staff with detailed information about their leave rights, the process for requesting FMLA leave and the process for returning to work. It also includes the development of new forms that will enable a thorough and timely assessment of FMLA leave requests. This, coupled with the designation of HR leave coordinators for each campus, will support and streamline the management of FMLA leave for all University staff. If you have any questions, please contact your human resources representative at Coral Gables/RSMAS or the Miller School of Medicine.
