OUSD Absence and Leave Policies 

long-term leave/absence is an arrangement between an employee and OUSD for an extended (longer than 10 days) absence or reduction of work hours. It is different from Vacation, Sick and Personal Leave, which are all forms of compensated time off for occasional short-term absences from work.

For more information, navigate to the Leaves Support Available for OUSD Employees page or email us.
