Reproductive Loss Leave Available for UCSF Employees

This leave type aligns with new California legislation. 

As of Jan. 1, 2024, UC’s leave options expanded to provide eligible employees with up to five days of protected leave following a reproductive loss. This change aligns with new California legislation.

An employee may take up to five days of Reproductive Loss Leave following a reproductive loss by the employee, by the employee’s current spouse or domestic partner, or by another individual if the employee would have been a parent of a child had the reproductive loss not occurred. “Reproductive loss” means a failed adoption, failed surrogacy, miscarriage, stillbirth, or an unsuccessful assisted reproduction.

If you need to request this type of leave, please reach out to the Leave Management office and they will provide you with guidance.
