The following benefits are the same or similar for all eligible classifications. A general description is listed below for each. Refer to the State Personnel Board Rules (for Classified) and the UNC Board of Trustees Policy Manual (for Faculty/Professional Exempt) for further information, details, and specific rules regarding the following benefits.
Workers' Compensation (Injury) Leave
The Workers’ Compensation Act of Colorado exists to ensure the quick and efficient delivery of disability and medical benefits to injured workers at a reasonable cost to employers. Workers compensation insurance covers work-related injuries and disease. Benefits include medical, wage loss, and death benefits. When workers are injured on the job, the incident must be reported to the supervisor and to Human Resources as soon as possible, preferably at the time of the incident, but at most within four working days of the occurrence. The employee must complete a First Report of Injury form at the Human Resource Services (HRS) office. If the injury is life or limb threatening, the employee should seek immediate medical attention at the nearest emergency room. Otherwise a HRS representative will schedule an appointment for the employee with UNC's designated medical provider. For more information, please contact Megan Bauer at 970-351-2718.
Civil Duty Leave
Any employee who is validly subpoenaed or summoned to involuntarily appear or serve as a juror in a judicial forum or compelled to appear before a judicial, legislative or administrative body with civil poser to compel attendance during regularly scheduled work hours, shall be entitled to receive leave with pay for a period of time necessary for such appearance if the appearance may not be reasonably accommodated by rescheduling the employee’s work hours, as determined by the University. Any compensation received for the appearance, other than travel and meal allowances, shall be reported to the University and deducted from any salary paid by the University for such Civil Leave. Civil leave shall not be granted for appearances as an expert witness for a party to litigation. Civil leave must be approved in advance in writing by the employee’s supervisor.
Bereavement leave provides up to 40 hours of paid leave to permanent employees at the time of death of a family member or other person. The decision to grant and the amount of leave are based on the relationship to the deceased and the distance and mode of transportation.
Family and Medical Leave
Eligible employees shall be entitled to receive a family and/or medical unpaid leave of absence for up to twelve (12) weeks per year for specific purposes. This may run concurrent with other paid leaves.
Upon presenting proper military orders, an employee who enters active military service, including active service for training purposes, with the armed forces of the United Stats or other branch of service in the national defense, shall be granted military leave without pay. Paid leave of fifteen (15) calendar days will be available per year for military training upon presenting proper military orders.
Paid Holiday Leave
Full-time employees shall be compensated for all holidays designated by the President that fall on regularly scheduled work days of the employee, provided that the employee has worked or been on approved leave for the required workday of the employee after the holiday. Unless otherwise restricted, part-time employees are provided a pro-rated allocation of compensated holiday leave under the same conditions as full-time employees.
