Parental Leave

Parental Leave Application

Parental leave is a paid leave associated with the birth of an employee's own child or the placement of a child with the employee in connection with adoption or foster care. This type of absence is not charged against the employee's leave credits, and the amount of paid days received is based on employee category. Paid Parental Leave may run concurrently with any other related leaves for which the employee is eligible.  Faculty who are parents are entitled to:

  • Up to 30 work days of paid parental leave, to begin within the “pregnancy disability period” that spans from 60 days before the anticipated birth to 75 days after or reduced workload, with Dean’s approval.
  • Leave sharing with a spouse / partner who is also employed by the CSU.
  • Extension of the probationary faculty time period for up to one academic year.
  • Up to 15 paid workdays of accrued sick leave within the so-called “pregnancy disability period.”
  • Up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave (job-protected) within a 12 month period (FMLA).
