The issue of maternity leave can often be a confusing one. One reason for this is that we have two places to look for for information - the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) legislation and our own contract. The EAPC will work with you and school administration to figure out what your options are and how to proceed. Open communication and as much advance planning as possible are important, as this allows all involved to be on the same page.
The links on the right side of this page will bring you to documents presented at the EAPC Maternity Leave Workshop that was held on 4/22/10. They cover many aspects of the issue and offer a great deal of information. Hard copies of this information are also available at the EAPC office.
If you have questions about the material presented here, or any other maternity leave questions, please contact your EAPC building representative. Before you read the documents presented on this page, please take the time to read the maternity leave section of your contract.
