Personal Leave

With Pay

All hourly employees with a 100% appointment are eligible for three (3) paid personal days per calendar year.

Because a salaried staff member's duties are not tied to a strict hourly schedule, no specific amount of personal leave is granted. Absences are to be reported in one-half (1/2) day increments and charged as approved leave with pay.

Without Pay

All staff employees are eligible for a personal leave without pay for up to three (3) or four (4) months, depending on the employee group. Leaves may be extended for an additional three (3) or (4) months, depending on the employee group, but not to exceed one (1) year (except for PA and SO, not to exceed a total of three (3) years).

Leaves may be granted for personal reasons such as education, settlement of an estate, adoption or placement of a child, serious health condition of a family member, etc. but not for the purpose of obtaining employment elsewhere.

For more information, please review your appropriate employee group contract/handbook.
