Leave of Absence without Pay

Leave of Absence without Pay provides a means of documenting and defining periods of time an employee is not working and is not in a paid leave status. These guidelines apply to full-time, part-time, staff, and faculty employees.

Leave of absence without pay of fourteen calendar days or less is commonly referred to as a dock. A leave of absence without pay for longer than fourteen consecutive calendar days is either unconditional or conditional leave without pay and is normally granted for up to 12 calendar months.
