A Leave of Absence (LOA) is an authorized, paid or unpaid time away from work, granted for a specific length of time.

Time Off

Time off will be granted for an employee's illness, death in the immediate family, or personal reasons as earned leave credits are available. An employee who finds it necessary to be absent for illness or death in the family should notify his/her supervisor of such absence and the reason at least one hour before the beginning of the leave.

An employee absent for a full day without proper notification to his/her supervisor is subject to disciplinary action. Repeated failure by the employee to properly notify his/her supervisor is cause for appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

Leave Without Pay

There are certain occasions for which the College may grant leaves without pay in addition to types of leave. Employees who wish to request such leaves should contact their supervisor and the Office of Human Resources.

Other Leaves

There are several other forms of leave which are available to state employees. These include:  military leave, court leave for required jury duty, parental or adoptive leave. Questions concerning these should be directed to the Office of Human Resources.
