Family and Medical Leave
The University of Dayton recognizes that an employee may need time away from work because of certain major life events, such as becoming a parent, experiencing a serious health condition that causes incapacity or requires continuing treatment, caring for a family member who has a serious health condition or a service member with a serious injury or illness or needing time with a family member called up for or on active duty in the Armed Forces. To balance these needs with the University's need to have employees available for work, the University of Dayton has established a policy in accordance with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA). The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) is a federal law that helps employees balance work responsibilities with family and medical needs. For the complete policy, please refer to the appropriate Benefits and Leave of Absence Handbook under the Leave of Absence Policies section.
The University observes 15 holidays each year. The office of human resources, after reviewing the academic calendar, publishes the approved holidays prior to the beginning of each fiscal year. Please refer to the bargaining unit contract for the holidays applicable to this group of employees.
