Ala. Admin. Code r. 670-X-15-.03 - Leave Without Pay

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 6, March 31, 2022

(1) Subject to the approval of the Director, an appointing authority may grant in writing to any employee a leave of absence without pay for a period not to exceed one year. Upon the expiration of such leave of absence, the employee shall be reinstated to a position in the classification he occupied at the time the leave was granted, even though this may require laying off an employee engaged to perform the duties during the period of the leave of absence. Failure of an employee to report for duty promptly at the expiration of a leave of absence shall be just cause for dismissal. If necessary to the efficient conduct of the business of the state, an employee on such leave of absence may be notified to return to work prior to the time of the expiration of the leave.
(2) Should the employee fail to return to work as directed, the Director shall declare the position vacant and shall fill it by the means prescribed in these rules for the filling of vacant positions.
