NC State University offers a variety of leave programs. Specific details on each program can be found on the Leave Programs page of the university’s HR website.
COVID-19 Leave Provisions: the UNC System has established new guidelines for leave provisions related to COVID-19, effective January 1, 2021. Find the latest information from University Human Resources here.
Family and Medical Leave Act
Family and Medical Leave provides up to 12 (or 26, as appropriate) workweeks of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period under specific circumstances. For a list of the qualifying reasons and more details on applying for FMLA see the Family and Medical Leave page on the university’s HR website.
Voluntary Shared Leave
The voluntary shared leave policy allows one state employee to assist another state employee affected by a personal or immediate family member’s medical condition. These conditions require absence from work for a prolonged period of time, resulting in a possible loss of income due to a lack of accumulated leave.
For more details on the program policies, qualifications and application please refer to the Voluntary Shared Leave page on the university’s HR webpage.
Eligible employees who experience a work-related injury or illness receive appropriate medical care and equitable benefits as provided under the Workers’ Compensation Act and the Workers’ Compensation section of the State Personnel Policy.
Remember to report any incident and complete all necessary documents within 24 hours. For more information, please visit the university HR Workers’ Compensation page.
NC State’s goal is to build a thriving pack by assisting university faculty and staff in achieving a overall health lifestyle by providing programs and/or services that address the Six Elements of Wellness: Career, Social, Financial, Physical, Emotional, and Community. Part of this initiative involves NC State’s Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) that provides support, resources, and information for personal and work-life issues. The program is university-sponsored, confidential, and provided at no charge to permanent Faculty & Staff and their dependents.
