Paid parental leave for apa and apsa support staff members

Beginning January 1, 2021, Administrative Professional Association (APA) and Administrative Professional Supervisors Association (APSA) support staff members will be eligible for MSU’s paid parental leave (PPL).

The PPL policy applies to full-time (90%+) employees represented in the APA and APSA bargaining units and covered under the collective bargaining agreement. Other groups are also eligible and listed on the Parental Leave Policy page.

This policy allows eligible employees to take a maximum of four weeks of paid parental leave (PPL) per birth, adoption or placement of a child/children into their household starting January 1, 2021. After that, the maximum number of weeks will increase gradually in the coming years depending on the union.


Eligible employees represented by APA can receive:

  • A maximum of five weeks starting January 1, 2022
  • A maximum of six weeks starting January 1, 2023


Eligible employees represented by APSA can receive a maximum of six weeks starting January 1, 2023.

To be eligible for the leave, employees must meet specific criteria. For full eligibility requirements and policy details, please visit the Parental Leave Policy page.
