Use this bundle to record and process all periods of absence that have been authorized by the department as an approved leave of absence. All approved leaves of absence without pay and leaves of absence with pay due to Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requirements must be entered on-line. A department head may approve an employee's request for a leave of absence without pay for a period not to exceed six (6) months. However, the department head must consult with Campus or Healthcare Human Resources for an approval of an extension of a leave of absence without pay beyond six (6) months. Refer to the appropriate personnel policies and bargaining agreements regarding leave of absence.
Use this bundle to process a change in the leave return date.
In addition, the next salary review date must be changed if the leave of absence period affects the months of qualifying service required for the employee to retain the existing salary review date. Because an employee is not on pay status during a leave of absence without pay, other benefits, such as those listed below, may be affected. Refer to the specific personnel policies and bargaining agreements for detailed information. Department Benefit Representatives can order "Benefits Checklist" pamphlets from the Benefit Programs Office to have available for employees when they go on leaves of absence. Informational pamphlets are available for the following leaves of absence:
To find Benefits Checklists refer to https://www.chr.ucla.edu/benefits.
