 1.3 - LEAVE

Annual, compensatory, and sick leave is charged in one-quarter hour increments. Prior approval must be obtained from your supervisor for all leave, whenever possible. If this is not possible, advise your supervisor within the first hour of your workday when you will not be on duty. Questions relating to leave should be directed to your immediate supervisor.

According to Article 42, Section 13 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement dated October 1, 2010, leave in conjunction with travel must be approved in advance and reflected on the travel authorization.
