GENERAL LEAVES OF ABSENCE

The Board of Regents may grant a leave of absence for a period up to one year except as stated in Policy IV E, Personal Leave. After the leave, the employee will return to his/her regular job or similar position. Each applicant will be required to state the purpose for which a leave is sought and to detail the manner in which an approved leave would be used. Leaves may be granted provided that satisfactory arrangements can be made to insure minimal disruption of operations. While a leave cannot exceed one year, it is subject to extension by the Board of Regents on a year-to-year basis. An employee granted subsequent leaves (beyond the first year) will be given every consideration for re-employment at the end of the leave period.

Conditions and requirements of specific types of leaves of absences are defined in subsequent policies.
