11.6 Family & Medical Leave Policies
Stanford University's family and medical leave policies are more fully described in the University's Faculty Handbook in Chapter 3. The department submits the signed Faculty Application for Leave of Absence form (available in the Forms section of the Toolbox of the Office of Academic Affairs Website) to the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA), where it is reviewed. The OAA forwards the request to Finance, where it is reviewed in regard to funding. The Vice Dean for Academic Affairs then reviews the application to determine credibility of the leave plan and notifies the department of the outcome. For additional information, contact the Benefits Office.
