Disability Leaves/Medical Leaves: Before an employee can be placed on a Medical Leave of Absence, a disabling statement from your attending physician must be obtained.

Once placed on a Medical Leave of Absence, you must present the Human Resources Office with a doctor's statement releasing you to perform the essential functions of your job before you may return to work.

A medical absence of three consecutive days or less does not require a doctor's disabling statement nor a leave of absence.  However, in questionable cases, a doctor's statement may be requested by your Boss before you are allowed to return to work.

Your position will normally be held open until your return to active employment unless your absence is prolonged and/or return is indefinite.
