Submit a Leave of Absence Request to your appropriate administrator for any paid or unpaid leaves and all medical absences beyond 5 work days. Any change in the length of the leave must be approved. This form is available on the University Personnel (UP) forms page.
Employees are encouraged to contact UP for leave advising prior to submitting their request. Medical certification is required, with different forms required for your own medical condition, work restrictions and accommodation requests, or the care of a qualified family member. Any changes to an approved leave require additional approvals. Where possible, leaves should be approved and in place one month prior to the start date. A formal medical release is required prior to returning from a medical leave.
Other options may include flex time, a reduced work schedule, partial paid and unpaid leaves, and job accommodations to help CSUMB staff and faculty successfully return to work and/or navigate life events.
The Chancellor's Office leave policy technical letter details guidelines on a full range of leave benefits, specific to each CBA. Some leaves of absences impact benefits so leave advising before designing a leave plan can ensure benefits continue uninterrupted.
