Pregnant and Parenting

Pregnant and Parenting Students and Employees

Washington State University (WSU) strives to provide an environment where students are able to work successfully towards graduation, and employees can continue to meaningfully contribute to the workplace, including those students or employees who experience pregnancy, child birth, health conditions related to pregnancy, termination, recovery, and/or the need to care for a newly adopted child or foster child.

For students, WSU will provide equal access to services, school programs, and extracurricular activities to pregnant and parenting students as they would to any other students.  For employees, WSU Human Resources Services can assist employees with needs relating to their employment.  In addition, WSU Human Resources Services provides information on the   Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

In addition to medical leave, the FMLA may be used for the birth of a child, placement of an adopted or foster child, and childcare for children under one year of age.
