Taking time away from work—whether for health or family needs, service to our nation or some other occasion—requires careful planning. A leave of absence is generally defined as any approved absence from work for an extended time for a specific reason—other than time off for vacation or sabbatical. Learn more about the leaves that may be available to you by referring to the checklists, FAQs and videos below.
