COVID-19 Employee Leave Options

Human Resources is here to support you and your family during this time. We want to make you aware of leave benefits available to you. There are many different types of leaves available to help all types of employees during this trying time including expanded FMLA.

Boise State University provides paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.  

You may also use sick, comp-time, and/or vacation leave for COVID related reasons. Please follow your department’s practices for gaining approval.

Submit a COVID-19 Leave Request Form to use any of the COVID-19 leave options below.  Human Resources will confirm eligibility and enter the leave codes on your timesheet. You must notify your supervisor with your leave request, prior to submitting.  If you have changes to dates submitted, complete another form and click ‘revised’.

The University may not interfere with an employee’s right to use FFRCA leaves, may not discriminate against an employee who requests or uses emergency paid sick leave, and may not retaliate against an employee for using or requesting to use emergency paid sick leave.
