University Policy 6.9
Family Leaves for Nonacademic Staff

Cornell University provides several kinds of leave to assist nonacademic staff members to balance the demands of the workplace, their individual needs, and the needs of their families, in ways that accommodate the legitimate interests of campus units. To assist staff to meet these needs, this section of University Policy 6.9, Time Away From Work establishes leave benefits relating to bonding, family health, and military family needs (“family leaves”).

This policy provides coverage for staff members who need medical leaves to care for covered family members.

Note: Academic staff members are covered under University Policy 6.2.1, Leaves for Professors and Academic Staff. Leaves for student employees are covered in Student Employment Policies and Procedures of the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment.
