Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)

Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)

Moravian University understands the importance of family issues to today's workforce and recognizes that its employees often face conflicting demands of family obligations and work requirements. Because employees may find it necessary to take leave from their jobs for a temporary period to address certain family responsibilities or their own serious health conditions, and in order to comply with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), the institution has established the following policy governing parental, family, and medical leaves.

Moravian University provides eligible staff and faculty members with up to twelve (12) weeks of position-protected leave for the family and medically related reasons covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA). The leave may be paid, unpaid, or partially paid, depending on related circumstances as specified in the policy.
