Family and Medical Leave

JHU recognizes the importance of your family and your health. We offer Family and Medical Leave to enable you to address personal illness as well as the illnesses and/or care of your immediate family members.

The JHU Policy for Family Medical Leave describes the provisions of the Act and the steps that need to be taken by you and your supervisor. If there are additional questions as to how this applies to you contact your Divisional Human Resource Office

Issues to Consider

  • Will you be paid for any portion of your Family and Medical Leave?
  • Do you want to change any of your benefits while on Family and Medical Leave?
  • Will JHU hold your position while you are on Family and Medical Leave?

Take Action

When you apply for Family and Medical Leave, be sure to:

  • Notify your supervisor.
  • Learn about your benefit payment options while on leave. Depending on the type of leave, you may be billed directly on a month by month basis in order to continue your benefits.
  • Contact the Benefits Service Center within 30 days of returning from a leave of absence to reinstate your benefits or make changes.

Remember, you are only allowed to make changes that are consistent with your life event.

If You Don’t Take Action

If you do not confirm the continuation of your benefits through direct billing your JHU benefits may not continue during your leave.
