Leave Without Pay and Absence Without Leave

Approved by:
Board of Trustees




Revised Date:

04/25/06 12/06/11

Written requests for absence without accrued leave must be submitted to the library director for approval. Absence without leave is granted through the Family Medical Leave Act or for other extraordinary circumstances. Employees must exhaust their accumulative annual and sick leave before requesting absence without leave. No other types of leave will accrue while the employee is on absence without leave. In extraordinary circumstances an employee on absence without leave may be placed in a different job assignment within the library system but will retain previous position title and level of compensation.

Absence without leave, without prior approval, is cause for disciplinary action and may be cause for dismissal.
