Leave for family obligations and emergencies

You can take up to three days of paid leave per calendar year for family obligations and other emergencies, including:

  • Providing temporary care for a family member who is sick
  • Attending an appointment at an adoption agency
  • Accompanying a dependent unable to travel alone to a doctor or dentist appointment
  • Attending an appointment with school authorities
  • A fire, flood, theft or natural disaster at your home or the hospitalization of a family member

You must make every effort to keep absences for family obligations to a minimum.

Leave Management System

You must enter your leave in the FAST leave management system (on-campus access only) prior to your leave or if this is not possible, immediately upon your return to work.
