Question:

When should I apply for a leave of absence?

 

Answer:

If you have an upcoming medical need (i.e., medical treatment, surgery, paternity, maternity, adoption, or caring for an eligible family member), you should notify your department and contact the Leave Program Manager 30 days prior to the effective date of the requested medical leave. If circumstances prevent a 30 day advance notice, you must contact the Leave Program Manager as soon as learning of the medical need. 

If your total time away from work would equal 3 consecutive days or more for a serious medical condition, or if you are caring for a family member with a serious medical condition please contact the Leave Program Manager to discuss leave programs you may be eligible for.
