All SHRA and EHRA Administrative employees who are eligible to earn leave qualify for the following types of leave:


  • Pregnancy & Parenting - On Aug. 11, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published its proposed regulations to implement the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA). The PWFA was passed by Congress in late 2022 as part of the omnibus spending bill and went into effect on July 27. The PWFA grants pregnant workers the right, at the federal level, to have access to reasonable accommodations to address “the known limitations related to the pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.”
  • Office of Access & Equity - The Office of Access & Equity is part of the Division of Institutional Integrity and provides leadership to the University’s efforts to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment. The office promotes equity in educational opportunity, programming, and employment and promotes an environment of respect and inclusion for all members of the University community.  The Office of Access & Equity includes Disability Resources and Equal Opportunity.
