Educ. or Personal Leave

Leave of Absence
Erlanger Health System recognizes the fact that employees will, from time to time request leaves of absence from the Health System. Specific questions not addressed here may be directed to Employee Relations, in the Human Resource Department.

Educational/Personal Leave
Erlanger Health System considers educational/personal leave requests. The following are examples of events that may qualify for educational/personal leave.

  1. Returning to school full time to pursue a degree.
  2. Private or personal matters not covered under the provisions of Family leave, such as childcare problems, sabbaticals, and emergency situations.

The maximum amount of leave time available is 12 months. An employee who is approved for a personal leave may receive available PAL, but not EIB. However, reinstatement rights do not apply for an employee on a personal leave. All regular employees who have completed their six-month probation period are eligible for personal leaves of absence.
