On Sept. 20, 2019, the University of North Carolina Board of Governors approved a Paid Parental Leave program for eligible university employees. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will offer a Paid Parental Leave (PPL) benefit, effective as of Jan. 13, 2020, that provides eligible employees dedicated leave time to care for and bond with a newborn or a newly-placed child, under the age of 18, by adoption, foster care placement, or other legal placement.
Voluntary Shared Leave allows one employee to assist another employee in the case of a prolonged medical condition that exhausts the employee’s available leave and would otherwise force the employee to be placed in leave without pay status, resulting in a loss of income and benefits. This policy does not apply to incidental, normal, and/or short-term medical conditions.
Paid Parental Leave (PPL) cannot be approved before the qualifying event (birth, adoption, foster care placement, or other legal placement of a child). Eligible employees who would like to request PPL should follow the steps in this document.
Leave Without Pay may be granted to an employee for various reasons, including family and medical leave, extended educational purposes, vacation, illness, workers’ compensation, military service, or personal reasons. At the end of the approved leave, the employee is reinstated to his/her prior position, or one of like seniority, status, and pay.
