Personal Leave of Absence Policy

Authors: XpertHR Editorial Team

When to Use

A personal leave of absence is typically a short-term absence for reasons other than illness or vacation. While federal law does not require that employers provide paid or unpaid personal leave, some states and localities entitle employees to paid leave that may be used for any reason. An employer should consider implementing a written policy if it is required by law to provide time off for any reason or if it voluntarily provides this leave to its employees.
