OHR has produced a short video for supervisors to clarify the process for when employees request an extended leave of absence, such as a parental, medical, or personal leave. The six-minute video explains:
- The types of leave handled by the central Leave Administration team
- The process for requesting a leave
- What leaves qualify under the Family and Medical Leave Act
Employees should always request leave using the My Time tab in MyU (see this OHR web page for instructions). If employees cannot request a leave themselves due to an emergency, their supervisor or a family member can initiate a request by emailing [email protected] or calling 612-624-8647 or 800-756-2363 and choosing option No. 2.
