Expanded FMLA (E-FMLA) provides partial pay when childcare needs result from the closure of a childcare facility or for the days on which the child’s school offers only virtual instruction. E-FMLA requires an application and compliance with federal rules and offers partial pay for E-FMLA time taken through Dec. 31, 2020. U-M HR has developed a set of resources for in-home care and tutoring.
Certain paid and unpaid time off options are available for this circumstance, including Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time for qualifying events. Vacation time, temporary reductions in effort, unpaid time off or personal leaves and modified work schedules are additional options available with supervisor approval. Please review the updated information on time off options on the COVID-19 page of the University HR website.
