New mothers and mothers who continue breastfeeding when returning to work, need the support of their team. Supervisors and managers can support their employees by being informed on UC Davis policies on accommodations.
Upon notification by an employee of her pregnancy, managers and supervisors are responsible for providing and discussing leave and lactation policies and options. Departments are responsible for identifying appropriate facilities in advance of the employee's return to work.
Leave/Time Off options:
Please visit the Maternity Benefits page for more complete information on parental leave.
- Family and Medical Leave Fact Sheet
- Basic and Voluntary Disability
- Employee-Initiated Reduction in Time (ERIT) program
Read the Guidelines for Lactation Accommodation which summarizes UC Davis and UC Davis Medical Center policies and guidelines for employees and supervisors.
Managers and supervisors can access a general list of buildings (Davis campus/ Health campus) with lactation rooms to determine if an employee has a lactation space nearby. Room users should have a contingency plan in place for non-business hours and/or circumstances beyond University control that restrict access to sites. Only registered participants have room numbers and access codes to the rooms for health, safety and legal reasons.
