Helpful Information

Employees on leave do not have access to Sunrun systems/email; however, they can still access Okta from a personal computer or device.

If placed on leave, either you or your manager will need to email leaves@sunrun.com 48 hours prior to your confirmed return date so that your systems can be reactivated.

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

FMLA is a federal law that guarantees up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave. You may be eligible for FMLA if:

  • You recently gave birth, adopted a child or had a foster child placed in your home
  • Your spouse, child or parent has a serious health condition
  • You have a serious health condition that makes you unable to perform the essential duties of your job
  • Your spouse, adult child or parent is a covered military member on “covered active duty”

Parental Leave

Employees going on a leave of absence due to the birth or adoption of a child must contact Broadspire to initiate the leave request and provide necessary documentation. Parental leave provides you with job and benefits protection, but may be unpaid.

Paid Parental Leave offers eligible full-time employees with a period of eight weeks of paid time off to bond with their newborn or newly adopted child. This policy is only applicable for children born or adopted on or after January 1, 2022. Paid parental leave for bonding is not subject to accrual and is not paid out upon termination if all or some portion is unused.

Pregnancy Recuperation provides eligible birth parents on approved STD with “top-off” pay to provide 100% income replacement for the duration of their approved short-term disability (not to exceed eight weeks). Pregnancy Recuperation pay does not commence prior to the delivery date. After this benefit ends, Paid Parental Leave would grant up to eight weeks at 100% pay for employees to bond with their child.

Employees in states that are eligible for wage replacement must apply for the state benefit. It is the employee’s responsibility to contact the state or appropriate vendor to apply and provide the necessary documentation.
