Leaves and Attendance

Introduction

We understand leave can be confusing. There are many different types of leaves and situations in which they apply. Please contact AUSD's  Employee Leave Specialist, Tonya Morgan, for help clarifying what type of leave you need for the situation in which you find yourself. You can contact Ms. Morgan at tmorgan@alamedaunified.org or 510-337-7070 ext. 77164.

 

Be especially sure to contact us if you need:

  • Leave to care for a sick child or other family member
  • Extended sick leave
  • Maternity/Paternity leave under FMLA/CFRA/California Education Code
  • PDL (Pregnancy Disability Leave)
  • FMLA/CFRA (leave for your own or a family member’s serious health condition)
  • Personal Necessity leave (if you need clarification on how to use it)

Reminder: Always notify your supervisor if you are going to be absent, enter your absence into Absence Management for the sub request, and submit a time off request in EmpCenter.

 

Below you will find a summary of how Personal Necessity leave applies to the different bargaining units and unrepresented employees.
