Except as allowed by law or negotiated agreements, employees are required to use and exhaust paid leave such as vacation leave, personal leave, compensatory time, or sick leave when requesting time away from work. Except as allowed by law or negotiated agreements, leave without pay will only be granted at the discretion and convenience of Clover Park Technical College. Each request for leave without pay will be considered on its own merits and in light of the impact of the leave on the operation of the College.
Leave without pay must be requested and approved by the Vice President for the appropriate department prior to usage. The employee must provide notice "as soon as practical."
"As soon as practical" generally means written notice within at least two business days of learning of the need for leave. Employees must report leave without pay on the Time & Leave Reporting (TLR) System.
