Attendance and Family Medical Leave


Absences covered by FMLA will not be counted as occurrences of absenteeism under Tulane University's attendance policy.

However, employees may be subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment if, during their leave, they engage in activities inconsistent with the stated purpose for the leave. For example, employees may be prohibited from engaging in other similar employment during FMLA leave.

Misrepresentations or any act of dishonesty related to FMLA leave will also be grounds for discipline, up to and including termination of employment.
