Can short-term temporary employees who will not meet the work requirements waive this benefit?

Employees who are not expected to work for the University for 26 consecutive weeks or 175 days in a 52-week period will be allowed to waive their right to receive Paid Family Leave benefits. If an employee signs a waiver, Paid Family Leave deductions will not be taken from their pay. If their schedule changes such that they would be expected to work 26 consecutive weeks or 175 days, the waiver will be automatically revoked and payroll deductions will begin.

Note: the regulations do not allow an employee to waive for any other reason, such as someone who does not have eligible family members for whom they could use the benefit, or someone who doesn’t want the coverage.
