Leave of absence
You have a right to some forms of leave of absence; others can be granted if they take work into consideration. A leave of absence may be with or without pay. Regulations are stipulated through general agreements and local agreements and guidelines.
If necessary and in consultation with your immediate manager, you may take a paid leave of absence in the following cases:
- family matter
- union representative mandate
- doctor’s appointment
- dental appointment in acute situations or if referred
An unpaid leave of absence may be for the following reasons:
- other government position
- care of a close relative
An unpaid leave of absence does not qualify for holiday leave.
