Rice University Resources Policy No.
APPLIES TO ALL RICE UNIVERSITY FACULTY AND STAFF
Rice University observes all Federal and State laws regulating
absence from work for military service. An unpaid leave of absence
is granted to any faculty or staff member fulfilling reserve
training, national guard, or active duty service requirements. If
at all possible, absences should be planned to avoid interruption
in regular work schedules or duties. Individuals must present a
copy of their military orders to their department chair/director as
soon as possible after call-up. The leave is granted without pay,
although staff members may draw upon benefit time to cover the
period of absence.
An approved absence without pay not longer than two calendar
weeks is granted without interruption of benefits. If an unpaid
absence is longer than two weeks, then the Policy on Personal
Leaves governs eligibility for and payment of benefits.
