Maternity Leave Policy

Maternity Leave Policy

Authority: 
Business Affairs
Date enacted or revised: 
n/a

McNeese State University will grant sick and annual leave to any employee who requests leave for maternity purposes, provided such request is supported by a medical statement from the attending physician which specifies the date employee shall cease work, the anticipated date of delivery, and the date of return to duty.

An employee on maternity leave who has exhausted both sick and annual leave may be given leave without pay for the remainder of time necessary prior to return on duty. However, an employee will not be granted leave without pay until other types of leave available for this purpose have been exhausted.
