CCC Announces New Maternity/Parental Leave Policy
Last week, the City Colleges of Chicago Board of Trustees approved a new maternity/parental leave policy for full-time non-bargained for employees and administrators who are eligible under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
The new policy, which is effective immediately, provides:
- up to four weeks paid maternity leave to a birth mother for a non-surgical delivery.
- up to six weeks paid maternity leave to a birth mother to recover from a C-section delivery.
- up to two weeks paid parental leave for the birth of a child for a spouse or domestic partner of birth mother.
- up to two weeks paid parental leave for the adoption of a child by the employee of spouse/domestic partner of the employee.
Employees may also combine other earned paid time off (e.g., vacation or personal days) with maternity/parental leave time to take leave through FMLA. Eligible employees must submit paperwork requesting FMLA leave to the Benefits Department at least 30 days prior to the date of leave.
If you have any questions regarding this new policy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call CCC’s Human Resources Benefits Department at 312-553-2895.
