  • What type of leave should be used?
  • How should leave be requested?
  • Which leave requests are handled at the department level, and which should be directed to HRS?
  • How can the work be accomplished when employees are on extended leave?
  • Do the same rules apply when medical leave is due to on –the-job injury versus an ongoing condition?
