Leaves of absence are granted for various purposes. Information concerning the types of leaves available can be found on the Benefits Office website. Information is listed by employee group, as follows:
When an employee needs to take a leave of absence, they should first contact their supervisor or department chair. They also need to contact the Human Resources Employment Office, Room 205, Old Main, and the Human Resources Benefits Office, Room 211, Old Main. Depending on the type of leave to be taken, the employee may need to provide documentation stating the reason for the leave (i.e., military orders, doctor's notice, etc.). It is important that employees taking a leave contact the Employment and Benefits offices, as there may be paperwork to be completed. The employee will also want to find out if their benefits will be affected by the leave.
