Child Adoption Leave

The child adoption leave shall be granted to classified employees and shall be without pay. The College President and/or designee shall be notified of such request in sufficient time to make proper substitute arrangements.

The child adoption leave may begin at the date the employee takes custody of the child, or any time within one (1) week prior.

The leave shall terminate sixty (60) days after the employee has taken custody of the child. The employee may request an extension to the sixty-day (60-day) limit in cases of unusual circumstances, as verified in writing by a social worker, pediatrician, or other appropriate professional.

Benefits will be administered in accordance with Section 9H2F of the CSEA Agreement.
