Medical Appointment Leave

Talk to your supervisor to request permission to use Medical Leave.

For more information about Medical Leave, contact Payroll at (505) 872-6880.

All employees are required to use sick, annual, or personal leave for all medical, workers compensation, dental and therapy appointments.

If sick, annual, or personal leave is unavailable the leave time would be unpaid.

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.
