Luther College strives to be an employer that promotes a healthy work-life balance. Accordingly, we offer a variety of leave programs, including paid time off (PTO), limited disability leave (LDL), parental leave, family leave, military caregiver leave, and others. Please contact Human Resources at [email protected] or x1134 with questions about any of these programs.
Eligible staff earn paid time off for each pay period based on their length of service. PTO is intended to be flexible; employees can use it for sick time, personal time, vacation, etc.
New full-time employees accrue six weeks (240 hours) of PTO each year. Employees with an FTE of more than .50 but less than 1.00 will earn a pro-rated amount of PTO based on their FTE. The maximum amount of PTO that may be carried is 360 hours.
Eligible faculty and staff unable to work due to a health condition may be eligible for limited disability leave at 70% of their regular rate of pay.
Eligible employees are entitled to paid parental leave.
For more information, please see the Faculty Handbook or the Staff Handbook.
The federal Family and Medical Leave Act provides unpaid, job-protected leave for employees. Eligible employees are entitled to:
Although FMLA leave is unpaid, it may run concurrently with other Luther College leave programs (such as PTO, limited disability leave, parental leave, etc.) that would provide pay.
