The Family and Medical Leave Act: Questions and Answers for Faculty.
Euben, Donna R.; Thornton, Saranna R.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles many faculty members to 12 weeks of job-protected unpaid leave each year to take care of a serious health condition or a family obligation such as the birth of a child, the arrival of an adoptive or foster child, or the serious health condition of a spouse, child, or parent. This guidebook is a resource for those who want to understand how the FMLA applies to the academic workplace. It is based on questions received from faculty members, administrators, and lawyers about the application of the FMLA to faculty members at colleges and universities. It provides general legal information and resources, but is not intended as legal advice. Appendixes list helpful Web sites and telephone numbers and helpful books and print resources. (SLD)
