Leave of Absence

Work is important and necessary; however, there are other things in life that are far more important: a new baby or an ailing relative, for example. 
Fortunately, Carle Health team members have access to several different types of leaves of absence available. A leave of absence is defined as an approved extended period away from work.  
An approved leave of absence does not determine how a team member is paid; compensation while on a leave of absence is dependent on time-off benefits such as vacation, sick time, short-term disability, or long-term disability.  
Giving reasonable notice of your leave is essential. It allows your leader to plan ahead and keep operations running smoothly. However, as many of these leaves are intended to address unexpected, emergency situations, it is understood that advance notice is not always possible.
