Personal Leave of Absence

If you need to take a leave of absence that does not qualify for FMLA or another university leave category, you may request a personal leave. The amount of time that may be approved depends on your length of service and the operational needs of your department. You will be required to exhaust all applicable annual and sick time upon personal leave approval.

To apply, call Liberty Mutual at 1-800-213-5609 or apply online. Liberty Mutual will provide you with the necessary form that you, your department head, VP or Dean and HR representative will need to complete and return to Liberty Mutual.

Eligibility and other Personal Leave Request Information is available in the GW Human Resources Manager's Toolkit.
