Taking a Leave of Absence

Taking time away from work—whether for health or family needs, service to our nation or for some other reason—requires careful planning. Just like there are many types of life situations, there are many leave options and policies as well.

Each leave program has its own rules for eligibility and use. Review the appropriate leave program(s) for you, and the actions needed to make your time away and return to work go as smoothly as possible.
