The University of Alberta has introduced the Compassionate Care & Emergency Leave (CCEL) benefit for eligible Academic staff to provide flexibility and help alleviate the stress caused by the conflicting pressures staff members face when catastrophic illnesses or family emergencies arise. This benefit has three elements; provision for time off (either paid or unpaid) to attend to emergent situations covered by this procedure, provision for continuation of employer paid benefit coverage in select circumstances and reimbursement to the department for incremental costs where a paid leave is approved.
