After successful completion of the introductory period, female employees, exempt and non-exempt, are eligible to receive 100% pay and benefits for up to eight weeks for maternity/adoption leave. Non-exempt employees are required to fulfill the elimination period as outlined in the section pertaining to Short Term Disability. Maternity Leave covers a maximum of eight weeks after delivery, unless it is medically determined that the disability must be extended.
In accordance with the Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act (MMLA), male employees are eligible for up to eight weeks of unpaid parental leave, so long as the employee:
- Has completed the introductory period or has been employed by WPI for three consecutive months as a full-time employee;
- Requests parental leave in connection with the birth or adoption of a child;
- Gives two weeks notice of the date of his departure and indicates an intent to return
Maternity/Adoption/Parental leave is considered time used against the maximum twelve weeks of FMLA. Refer to the FMLA Section for more details on FMLA. Employees who take maternity, adoption, or parental leave will be reinstated to their regular position upon their return. Failure to return to work at the end of the maternity/adoption/paternal leave (without an approved extension) shall be considered a resignation.Maintained by email@example.com
