Great! Here’s everything you need to know about taking time off work, enrolling your new child in benefits, and resources UC offers to help you take care of yourself and that adorable bundle of joy.
UC Berkeley’s Tang Center (Health Services) provides a wealth of internal and external family oriented resources. Topics include:
- Pregnancy, Post-Delivery & Expectant Parents
- Adoption, Fostering, and Guardianship
- Child Care & Summer Camps
- Parenting Resources
Through Berkeley Lab’s partnership with Bright Horizons, employees no longer have to miss work when their normal care arrangements are unavailable. Employees have access to a comprehensive national network of childcare centers and in-home providers for child, adult and elder back-up care needs.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP) helps employees and their family members find solutions to personal and work-related challenges through counseling, consultation, assessment, and referrals. All services are voluntary, confidential, and free of charge.
For Nursing Mothers
Berkeley Lab’s goal is to provide a supportive, family-friendly work environment. To accommodate nursing mothers, we have a Lactation Accommodation Program that provides the time and space for your needs.
