Faculty Leave Request

Faculty Leave Request - Please see UPPS 04.04.30 for the Policy

Faculty members earn sick leave and must report sick leave taken even if no classes were missed as required by the State of Texas (Texas Government Code 661.203). Nine-month faculty members are not required to report hours worked. The specific reporting processes for faculty to use in reporting sick leave only are prescribed in Section 16, Record Keeping Procedures.

Faculty must report sick leave for the actual time missed from carrying out their normal, negotiated workload responsibilities (teaching, research, and service). Sick leave taken must be recorded in hours, including partial day absences.

For absences over a continuous period exceeding one day, the amount of time charged against sick leave should include each working day, except holidays. Report all hours absent, not just hours on which classes were missed or taught by a substitute. For example, when a faculty member is ill for three days and is absent from his or her Monday and Wednesday classes and office hours, and is also unable to carry out normal research and service activities, the faculty member will use and report 24 hours of sick leave for the three-day period, even though there were no classes or office hours scheduled for Tuesday.
