Administrative Leaves

For Employee Organizational Activity

Employees wishing to participate during work hours in activities of Academic Senate, UAAD, or UNOPA should use regular procedures to request leave. When departments grant leave for this purpose, it is granted as administrative leave. Normally, leave is granted for attendance at monthly meetings when the meeting time extends beyond the lunch hour. Administrative leave may also be granted to allow employees to participate in committee work or to engage in leadership roles of the organizations.

For Interviews

An employee will receive administrative leave of up to ten hours per calendar year for job interviews for UNL positions. At the discretion of the dean or director of the work unit, and with the approval of Human Resources, the employee may receive more than ten hours. Employees requesting administrative leave should try to arrange interviews to cause the least work disruption.

Administrative leave will not be granted for interviews outside UNL.

For Inclement Weather

At the discretion of the chancellor, employees (except those required for campus operations) may be granted administrative leave for inclement weather.

Even when the chancellor has granted administrative leave to most employees because of inclement weather, some employees because of the nature of their jobs, will be required to report to work. Departments are responsible for designating these employees and for notifying them ahead of time.
