Paid Parental Leave Repayment

The University of Arizona Paid Parental Leave Policy requires employees to agree to return to work for at least 30 days after their approved leave for the birth or adoption of a child. An employee who fails to return must reimburse the University for the salary and benefits received during the period of Parental Leave.

An employee who does not return to work will be considered in an overpayment status for the time paid as Parental Leave. Please refer to the University policy on overpayments.
