YOUR PAID LEAVE OPTIONS

Chances are there will come a time when you will have to take time off to care for a loved one. Rhode Island’s TCI law provides most RI employees up to four weeks of paid leave, giving you some peace of mind so you can provide care without worrying about losing your job.
THIS IS AN EMPLOYEE-FUNDED PROGRAM – YOU PAY FOR IT!

PARENTAL LEAVE

Having a strong bond with parents is vital to a baby’s development. And you deserve time away from work to bond with a newborn baby, a newly adopted child, or a foster child. Use paid leave to take up to four weeks away from work to start building the foundation for a healthy family. Feel comfortable knowing that you’re still receiving some income to provide for your family – and that you’ll be able to return to a job.

FAMILY LEAVE

When your spouse, domestic partner, child, parent, parent-in-law, or grandparent is seriously ill, you’ll be able to take up to four weeks away from work to care for them. Your income will be partially replaced while you are providing care, and your job is guaranteed to be there when you return.
