4.24 Exempt Employee Leaves/Voluntary Partial Leaves
Exempt employees are eligible to apply for a reduced work load with a commensurate reduction in salary and benefits for a period not to exceed one year. Such a leave may be requested for non-job related activities, professional development, or personal reasons. This option is available to exempt employees upon approval by the Supervisor and recommendation by the appropriate Dean to the President who may, at his discretion, approve the request.
At the employee’s initiative, a written request for a reduced work load is submitted to the appropriate supervisor no later than ninety (90) days before the beginning date of the requested leave.
