Leave of Absences
A leave is an authorized absence from active service granted to a contract employee, for a specified purpose and period of time, with the right to return to active service unless the employee’s service would have otherwise been terminated. The term “formal leave” refers to any leave of more than twenty days in duration. Formal leaves must be applied for in writing using the District form at least two calendar months before the start of the leave of absence.Contract Reference: For additional information on leaves and absences, click here to link to the LAUSD / UTLA Bargaining Agreement.
