Leaves of Absence

Employees can request leaves of absence for a variety of reasons, including those circumstances outlined in the federal Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA). Consistent with its obligations under state and federal law, the College retains complete discretion whether to grant or deny an employee’s request for a leave of absence, and to define the terms and conditions of the leave. Faculty members are also subject to the applicable provisions of the Faculty Handbook. Any absence of two weeks of more, whether paid or unpaid, requires that a Leave of Absence be requested.
