What Are the Details of Kent State’s New Parental Leave Policy?
The university will provide paid parental leave to employees to recover from childbirth and/or to care for or bond with a child. This policy applies to all full-time, benefits-eligible employees who are not in a recognized bargaining unit. To be eligible for paid parental leave, an employee must have become a new parent as a birth mother, birth father, adoptive parent, domestic partner or foster-care parent with legal custody or guardianship. For more details, please review the full policy. If you have any questions concerning this new employee benefit, please email benefits [at] kent.edu.
