LEAVE WITHOUT PAY

NOT DUE TO A FISCAL EMERGENCY OF THE STATE

A leave of absence without pay may be granted by an agency for up to one year for any satisfactory reason.  A leave of absence without pay of more than one year may be granted by the Personnel Commission.

A request for leave without pay should typically be submitted to an employee's supervisor but may require additional approval from human resources or the agency's appointing authority.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

An employee who has 90 days of employment with the State is entitled to not more than 160 hours of leave (potentially including annual leave, sick leave, or compensatory time) in one 12-month period beginning on the date of the act of domestic violence if an employee is a victim of an act of domestic violence or his or her family or household member is a victim of domestic violence.
An employee may take leave related to an act of domestic violence to:
  • Obtain a diagnosis, care or treatment of a related health condition;
  • Obtain counseling or assistance;
  • Participate in any related court proceedings; or
  • Establish a safety plan.


APPROVING/REJECTING LEAVE

Technical (step-by-step) guide: See the NEATS Timekeeping Module procedure (01.30.10) and NEATS tutorials.

When determining whether to APPROVE or REJECT a leave request or a leave entry on a timesheet, consider the following factors:

  • Do the notes (yellow sticky note image link on the timesheet) agree with the hours requested and information entered in the Additional Description: field?
  • Will your work group have sufficient coverage of key duties during the period the employee has requested leave?
  • Will you be violating any regulations or policies by approving or rejecting the leave?

See your agency's policies, procedures or regulations for any agency specific processes (e.g., required hard copy form).  See the NEATS Handbook for applicable payroll code(s).
