Applying for Assault Leave
These leaves are applied for and approved in the Human Resources Leaves Office, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE, Suite 210 East, Phone 889-4865.
All paperwork must be original and no third party faxes.
An employee will not be charged for time lost, up to twenty (20) duty days, resulting from physical injuries caused by an assault while carrying on the duties/responsibilities of the position. An assault shall mean an intentional act which causes an injury. This leave is granted with or without pay, depending upon the circumstances of each situation. Any employee assaulted shall report the incident to the immediate supervisor immediately. In the event that more than three (3) days are lost as a result of an assault, the employee shall submit to the immediate supervisor a physician’s certificate attesting to the injury. The District reserves the right to have the employee examined by a physician, in order to determine the employee's right to receive benefits. Benefits will go into effect immediately and remain in effect until such time as it is determined that benefits should not be provided. In such an event, the employee will assume all expenses, including leave without pay if sick leave has been exhausted.
Extended Leaves Policy
All leaves of ten (10) consecutive work days or less must be requested through and approved by the employee’s principal or supervisor. Extended leave of more than ten (10) consecutive days, with or without pay, must be requested through the Human Resources Leaves Office. Employees must complete the required Leave Forms and receive the necessary approval before the leave requested may be taken.
When an employee becomes ill or is injured on the job, sick leave begins at the time of inability to continue work, to the nearest half-hour. An employee, who is already on annual leave, personal leave or leave without pay, including parental leave, may not be eligible to use sick leave benefits.
While on an approved leave, an employee may not volunteer or perform any duties for the APS District or utilize APS property for personal use.
