Administering Employee Paid Time Off and Leave

The university supports its employees' ability to balance their work and home lives by providing several paid time off and leave options, with certain restrictions and limits, including paid annual and sick time, leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, leave under the District of Columbia Family and Medical Leave Act and leave under the District of Columbia Parental Leave Act, as well as other options for paid time off and unpaid leave.

This section provides supervisors with guidance on how to administer paid time off and leave, including approving employee paid time off and leave requests, consistently applying university paid time off and leave rules, and establishing and maintaining accurate paid time off and leave records. Supervisors are responsible for assisting employees in managing their paid time off and leave so that employees are able to take time away from work and, at the same time, ensure operational requirements are met. Guidance for developing administrative approaches to this responsibility is available from Human Resources.

The university reserves the right to modify or discontinue its paid time off and leave programs in whole or in part at any time, except as required by law.
