Parental Leave & Benefits for Academics
I am a female professor at a Bay Area private college that offers no maternity policy and no maternity leave (outside of just taking disability pay) and I am expecting my second child in the early part of next year's Spring semester, and I plan to go back to work full time after three months of disability pay. I wonder if anyone with faculty positions has had experience negotiating with administration about missing part of a semester? I have a considerable teaching load but will only be available for the beginning and very end of the semester, and I fear that there will be an attempt to force me to lose pay for an entire half-year, which I cannot afford. Does anyone know what my legal rights are in California, have you consulted with anyone who has helped you negotiate this, what options have you tried? Thanks much.
