Some employees may feel compelled to come to work while possibly infected with contagious conditions because they do not have sufficient accrued leave and would be in leave without pay status. The leave advancement policy allows employees with no leave balance to borrow against future leave accrual in order to remain in pay status while away from the work-site. This will help to reduce the possibility of spreading an infectious virus to co-workers.
The University will determine which viruses or contagious conditions qualify for advanced leave based on information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Human Resource Management must approve Leave Advancement requests.
For more information, please refer to the Leave Advancement Policy.
