A leave of absence without pay of up to 6 months may be granted when a leave is mutually convenient for the employee and the university, provided a replacement is not required.
If the employee fails to return to work at the university on or before the expiration of the Mutual Leave, the employee will be considered to have resigned from the university. If the employee fails to return to work at the university at the end of the leave and work for a period of time equal to the length of the leave, he or she must repay the portion of the benefit costs paid by the university during the Mutual Leave.
Benefit plans may be continued during Mutual Leave. For eligibility information and to request leave of absence forms, please contact Diane Drake in University Human Resource Services at 765-285-1036.
