HR expands to include a Leave and Accommodations Team

September 15, 2023

The UA HR Benefits team is dedicated to providing top-tier customer service to all UA employees when it comes to employee benefits, leaves, and accommodations. As such, our team has expanded to include a Leave and Accommodations Team.

We are committed to the employee experience when it comes to UA Parental Leave, Family Medical Leave (FML), Short-term, and Long-term Disability (STD and LTD) benefits. The Leaves and Accommodations team will work closely with Unum to provide continuous customer service for employees who are utilizing one or more of these leaves.

Additionally, the Leave and Accommodations Team will manage all aspects of the interactive process and accommodation requests under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as pregnancy-related, and religious accommodations.

Please join us in welcoming our Leave and Accommodations Team:

  • Parker Leland, Manager of Leaves and Accommodations, and 
  • Heidi Thompson, Leaves and Accommodations Specialist 

If you need assistance with UA Parental Leave, FML, STD, or LTD, please email

If you need assistance with an ADA accommodation, please email
