UTMB enhanced its emergency paid leave benefit in April 2020 to address the needs of our workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The benefit provided eligible employees up to 80 hours of emergency leave paid at 100% of their base pay rate for the same qualifying reasons identified in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

The benefit has expired and is no longer available to employees. For questions or guidance regarding its expiration, please email
