CONTACT INFORMATION:  Carol Dorsey, 919 918-7321

 

INFORMATION:  Board members and employees have inquired about the possibility of adding some form of paid leave to the Town’s benefit package.  An increasing number of neighboring municipalities and national private sector employers are offering employees various paid leave options.

 

Options include paid sabbaticals, combining School and Petty Leave, paid parental leave for mothers and father, etc.

 

Attachment A shows data from neighboring municipalities regarding paid parental leave.  Research shows that currently most municipalities are restricting paid leave to parental leave only - - though some are considering the addition of pay for general Family and Medical Leave. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  Fiscal and Staff impact will depend on the type and duration of leave that the Board approves.

 

RECOMMENDATION:Staff recommends that Board considers options and provides feedback.
