Employee Leaves

COVID-19 FMLA/OFLA Expansion :

The university recognizes the impact that COVID-19 may have on an employee's ability to work due to school and child care closures. The first course of action is to explore flexible work options, such as remote work or flexible schedules, where possible.

Because flexible work arrangements are not always appropriate or viable due to personal and operational realities, the University of Oregon has implemented an expansion of the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) in accordance with state regulations.

Temporary FMLA Expansion Due to School or Place of Care Closure expired on 12/31/2020. You may still be eligible for unpaid OFLA Sick Child Leave for child/ren’s school or childcare provider closure due to a public health emergency (COVID-19) by submitting an online application to HR for OFLA Sick Child Leave eligibility determination. You will be required to provide documentation to support your request for leave. Approval from your supervisor is required for any intermittent leave or on a modified work schedule request.

Types of Leaves

Employees need time away from work for many different types of situations. Whether it’s time off from work to take care for a new child, or deal with a serious health situation involving a family member or themselves, employees will want to request the time that they need from their supervisor.  Below you’ll find the different types of employee leaves along with the university forms to complete the paperwork. 

Supervisors must notify Human Resources so the proper documentation can be sent to the employee requesting leave.   After reviewing this information if you have further questions, please contact the Leaves Coordinator in Human Resources for more information at 541-346-2950 or HRLeaves@uoregon.edu.
