What are paid and unpaid Maternity Leaves?

A paid leave is when you use any or all of your accumulated sick leave, annual leave, banked leave time (BLT), or comp time while off on leave.

An unpaid leave is when you’ve exhausted your sick leave and elect not to use or do not have other leave to use while off on leave. 

During an unpaid leave, you do not accrue continuous service hours or leave accruals.

If you have enrolled in Long Term Disability (LTD), you must contact Sedgwick at 800-324-9901 to apply for LTD during your Maternity Leave.  LTD may cover a portion of your pay during your Maternity Leave.
