The University of Memphis offers six weeks of paid leave to employees upon the birth or adoption of a child. You must be fully benefits-eligible and employed by the UA for at least 12 continuous months prior to the leave. You can use this leave to work intermittently or part-time, as prearranged with your supervisor. For more information, please contact Human Resources or submit a Paid Parental Leave Request.
