Leave Without Pay Notification Process


During a recent audit of time reporting practices, it was determined that leave without pay is not being reported on a timely basis to the Laboratory. Good business practice requires prompt and accurate reporting of employee time. Leave without pay time entry must be entered into LETS as soon as the employee obtains approval from their supervisor.


Unless otherwise requested by the employee and approved by the division director or department head, approved leave without pay begins when all vacation and applicable sick leave credit has been exhausted. See RPM §2.09 (D), Use of Sick Leave. This provision does not apply to family care and medical leave. See RPM §2.13 (E), Use of Accrued Paid Leave.
