Leave Share

The University has a Leave Share Program for employees who have exhausted all accrued leave due to an FMLA qualifying event. Leave is awarded by a confidential committee and runs concurrently with FMLA.

Eligibility:
All full-time employees are eligible for leave share after 12 months of consecutive of employment. Employees must have a minimum sick leave balance of a least (80) hours during the 12 months period immediately preceding their full-time leave.

Leave share can be used post-partum, but shared leave cannot be used for FMLA bonding time.

Request:
Requests for Leave Share must come from the employee's supervisor or next level supervisor. Fill out the attached form and submit it to benefits@uco.edu for consideration.
