Academic-year leave of absence applies to regular academic-year employees who are given reasonable assurance at the beginning of summer that the same or similar position will be available in the Fall.
Benefit-eligible academic-year employees must pay for the employee portion of his/her health and dental insurance benefits during the summer months. This may be accomplished by paying the premiums over a 10-month period. During the first year of employment, academic-year employees will pay their premiums on a month-to-month basis, and may be required to double-up their benefits premiums to pay for coverage over the summer. Once the required waiting periods have been met, Life, Long Term Disability, and Short Term Disability insurance are maintained during the summer months at no additional cost to the employee.
