Leave of Absence

A Leave of Absence is an approved period of time during which an employee is allowed to be away from work, typically for personal, medical, or other specific reasons. This time off is granted by the employer and is often governed by company policies and employment laws.

An employee may request a Leave of Absence to care for a sick family member, pursue further education, or recover from a medical procedure. The employer reviews the request and, if approved, grants the employee time away from work with or without pay, depending on the company's policies.
