A leave of absence without pay of up to 6 months during a "leave year" may be granted when such a leave is necessary for an employee to provide care for a member of the employee's immediate family or household suffering from a serious health condition.
Employees may be paid up to 5 days (40 hours) of sick leave during each fiscal year for absences related to the care of a member of the employee's immediate family or household. The employee will be required to provide medical certification to substantiate the medical necessity for the employee's absence from work.
To the extent that the Emergency Leave is also a Family and Medical Leave qualifying leave, it will run concurrently with Family and Medical Leave. Benefits may be continued during an Emergency Leave. For eligibility information and to request leave of absence forms, please contact Diane Drake in University Human Resource Services at 765-285-1036.
