If you are unable to work due to a disability, the disability of a qualified family member or the birth or adoption of a child, you may take a leave of absence. Many of the leave programs run concurrently with one another, so please refer to the Leave of Absence Policy in the University Policies for complete guidelines on which benefits apply to each of the leaves listed below:
When the need for leave is foreseeable, you must apply for and be approved in advance of your leave start date. In this case, thirty days notice, or as much notice as is practical, should be given.
Leaves of absence are unpaid; however, you may be eligible to receive pay for your leave using accrued sick time if you are on an approved medical leave and if you have met the eligibility requirements for interim disability benefits. Approved leaves may also use accrued vacation time if available.
