Illness or injury to a close family member can be stressful, time-consuming and emotionally difficult. A university benefit, however, can help make those challenges a little less demanding.
Paid family leave provides up to six weeks of paid leave to care for qualified family members such as a spouse, child or parent. It’s not for employees’ own illnesses, but it also doesn’t require use of extended illness or paid time off balances.
You can apply for paid family leave by contacting the university’s leave vendor, Flores Leave Solutions. These steps will include the Family Medical Leave Act process, which is required in the application for paid family leave.
Employees must provide documentation and meet other requirements. Check this page on My UT Health and scroll to “Paid Family Leave” for those details.
