Non-Sabbatical Leaves of AbsenceLast modified: December 05, 2016
The University offers unpaid leaves of absence to provide continuity of service during an extended period of absence. Leaves of absence are without compensation by the University. Twelve months of continuous service is required between any two of these leaves: personal, educational, government service, or for a child care leave lasting greater than six months.
A leave of absence may affect the continuation of an employee’s benefit coverage, and an employee’s contributions to maintain benefit coverage. The University will continue its contribution to maintain an employee’s health, dental and vision coverage for the period of time that an employee’s absence is covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA). An employee’s absence may be partially or completely covered by the FMLA during the following leaves of absence: medical, child care, medical/child care, family care, care of a covered servicemember, and qualifying exigency.
