Ala. Admin. Code r. 670-X-15-.06 - Mandatory Annual Leave And/Or Leave Without Pay

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

(1) An appointing authority, with the approval of the Director, may require an employee to use accumulated annual leave under certain circumstances when the appointing authority deems the employee's absence from work to be in the best interests of the agency. Examples of such circumstances would include a period of time when the employee is under investigation that may lead to disciplinary proceedings, the period of time pending a disciplinary hearing after the employee has received notice of such hearing, and at such times as the employee is physically incapacitated from performing the work assignment (such as in a state of intoxication).
(2) Under similar circumstances as enumerated in (1) above, when the employee has no accumulated annual leave or insufficient annual leave, the appointing authority may nevertheless require the employee to vacate the work station for a specified period of time in the status of leave without pay. Such action by the appointing authority should be preceded by a notice to the employee that such action is contemplated and an opportunity for the employee to be heard in response.
(3) The Director shall have the discretion to restore accumulated annual leave expended under the provisions of (1) above, and/or approve a subsequent reinstatement of pay forfeited by the employee during the leave without pay status provided for in (2) above.
