Leave policies for University and classified staff vary from those for faculty members. Leave for classified staff is defined by the Commonwealth’s policies for state employees. Currently University staff receive a certain number of leave days each year that can be used when they are sick, for vacation, or for family/personal reasons. For more information about these leave policies, see the sections on University, classified, and professional research staff on “HR for You” on UHR’s website. For the most current information on the provisions and implementation of the new Paid Parental Leave Policy, see UVA HR’s FAQ webpage.
