JHU offers up to four weeks of fully paid leave for full- and part-time JHU faculty, visiting faculty, staff, and bargaining unit employees following the birth of a child or adoption of a child under the age of 12. Parental leave can be taken by mothers or fathers—or both, if both work at JHU—as long as they have been employed by JHU in an eligible status for at least a year at the time of birth or adoption placement. Parental leave can be taken all at once or intermittently throughout the year after the child’s birth or adoption.
For information on how FML, Birth Recovery Leave, Parental Leave and Short-Term Disability work together refer to the detailed process flow below. The flow will show the steps necessary prior to, during and at the end of leave.
