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.

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.

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.
