Maternity Leave

Maternity Leave 

* Provide a completed Leave Application with a doctor's certificate or FMLA form to Human Resources at least 30 days prior to your leave. Once your form is received you will be contact by Human Resources to schedule your leave. All leaves must be approved by the Millville Board of Education.

* Employees are granted 4 weeks before and 4-6 weeks after depending on the birth. If you are in need of a longer leave based on a disability, please provide a doctor's certificate.

* If you do not have enough sick days to cover your maternity leave, you will be placed on unpaid leave for the time you are off utilizing FMLA.

* You must work 90 days to advance to the next step on your salary scale.

* If you are on unpaid leave, MPS does not pay into your pension. Therefore if you are off 6 months unpaid, that time is NOT going towards your retirement. You can buy back your time if you would like.

* Health Benefits will continue the entire time if you are off on PAID leave. They will be provided for 12 weeks of unpaid leave. You are still responsible for your health insurance contribution during your leave. After the 12th week, you will be responsible to pay for your benefits.
