Employees may continue insurance benefit coverages during an approved unpaid Leave of Absence (over thirty days of leave) by prepaying for the coverages they wish to continue. If medical, disability or life insurance premiums are not prepaid while on leave of absence, coverage will terminate and the employee must re-apply and submit an appropriate statement of health for approval by the insurance company before the benefit can be reinstated. Please refer to the specific benefit brochure or plan document for greater detail.
An employee will be credited with University seniority for an unpaid leave of absence. This credit will not exceed the number of months he or she was employed prior to the leave or six (6) months, whichever is less.
