CSP may grant an unpaid leave of absence of up to 12 months to full-time employees if it is determined that the best interests of CSP will be served. Reasons for a leave of absence may include illness or death in the immediate family, marriage, education, and advanced study.

The request must be made in writing, approved by the supervisor, the area Vice President, and the Director of Human Resources. There must be reasonable expectation that the individual will return to full employment status following the leave of absence. CSP will make a good faith effort to return the employee to a position that is similar to the one vacated, however, there is no guarantee of return to the same position.

An employee on a leave of absence does not accrue Paid Time Off, but is eligible to continue his or her participation in benefit plans. The individual on a leave for reasons other than those covered by the Family Medical Leave Act is responsible for payments of all premiums (if any) and making the necessary arrangements to ensure uninterrupted coverage.
