An employee may make a request through their Service Manager for unpaid leave of absence providing this period does not exceed one consecutive calendar month. If a longer period of unpaid leave is requested, a request must be submitted in writing and approved by the relevant Head of Service. Where an unpaid leave period is extended beyond one consecutive calendar month, consideration should be given to any potential impact on pension, annual leave abatement and continuous service. Employees should discuss with their line manager whether any other provision would be more suitable to allow the extended period of leave.
If you wish to apply for Authorised Unpaid Leave, please complete the Request and Notification for Authorised Unpaid Leave Form and submit this to your Line Manager.
Please see the separate Authorised Unpaid Leave Process for further details.
