Changes to Applying for a Leave of Absence

News from June 19, 2019

The University of Pennsylvania is making changes to how staff will request Family Medical Leave (FML), Short-Term Disability (STD), and Paid Parental Leave (PPL).

Effective July 1, 2019, you will apply for FML and PPL through a self-service portal in Workday. Additionally, the University will be working with a third-party administrator, Broadspire, to review and approve all new leaves and will determine whether your leave qualifies for STD.

For steps on how to apply for leave in Workday and for more information about these changes, read "Changes to Applying for a Leave of Absence" in the June 12 issue of the myHR newsletter.
