IDA315 - Leaves of Absence Without Salary

IDA 315

RE: Redelegation - Leaves of Absence Without Salary

Authority for academic personnel actions was delegated to the Executive Vice Chancellor by the Chancellor in his delegation of authority dated July 3, 2000 [superseded by IDA 517, 6/19/12]. I am redelegating part of that authority to you, as specified below.

Effective immediately, I am redelegating to Academic Deans the authority to approve leaves of absence without salary for academic appointees in their units. Leaves without salary must be consistent with systemwide and local policy and may not exceed one year.

Authority for the following will remain in my office:

  1. Requests for leaves without salary for more than one year.
  2. Requests for leaves without salary that, in combination with other leaves, total more than one year.
  3. Requests for leaves without salary that, when added to other leaves without salary taken in previous years, exceed a total of three quarters of leave without salary in a three-year period for academic-year appointees or four quarters in a four-year period for fiscal-year appointees.

Approved documentation for leaves of absence must be forwarded to the Office of Academic Personnel prior to the effective date of the leave. Academic Personnel will remain the office of record for this documentation.

This authority may not be further redelegated and supersedes Executive Vice Chancellor Smith's delegation of September 18, 1991.
