AFSCME: 20.9 Absence Without Leave or Refusal of Leave or Failure to Return After Leave

Failure to report for duty after a leave of absence request has been disapproved, revoked, or canceled by the appointing authority, or at the expiration of a leave, shall be considered an absence without leave.

Absence Without Leave

Absence from duty without leave for any length of time without a satisfactory explanation is cause for dismissal. Absence without leave for four (4) or more consecutive days without a satisfactory explanation shall be deemed a tender of resignation. If within thirty (30) days after the first day of absence without leave a person who has been absent makes an explanation satisfactory to the Board of Supervisors, the Board may reinstate such person.
