Family & Medical Leave Entitlements – Employee, Supervisor and HR Responsibilities

Please Note: Due to SEBAC 2017 Family and Medical Leave changes please see the box on the right on how to apply for Family & Medical Leave Entitlements.

Employees are required to apply for long-term leaves of absence through CORE-CT at the UCONN employee self-service portal located at http://ess.uconn.edu/. Leave requests that must be submitted via CORE-CT include:

  • Sabbatical Leaves
  • Voluntary Schedule Reduction
  • Military Leaves of Absence
  • Personal/Emergency Leave
  • Faculty Other

Leaves of absence are specified by Federal Law, State of CT statute, University policy, collective bargaining contract, or a combination thereof, so it is important for you to understand the differences. After reviewing this information, please contact the HR Service Desk for guidance at 860-486-3034. The customer service representative will ask a few questions to determine which Leave coordinator you’ll need to speak with to support you with your leave.
