PS-12, Leave Guidelines for Academic, Professional and Classified Employees, was designed to define the various leaves of absence policies and procedures in order that the granting of leave and the maintenance of records may be accomplished in accordance with University and Civil Service regulations.
Employees shall not absent themselves from their duties without proper authorization. It is the responsibility of the department head or his/her designee to receive and review requests for all leaves of absence and approve or disapprove such requests in accordance with University policy. If paid leave is neither available nor appropriate, leave without pay shall be charged. If an employee fails to submit a leave slip, leave must be administratively deducted from his/her record. The department head or his/her designee shall ensure that the department staff keeps accurate leave records on all departmental employees and reports information on leave accrued, leave taken and leave denied. No employee shall approve or maintain records for his/her own leave.
