1.28 Administrative Leave Policy

I. Voluntary Administrative Leave

In situations in which the provision of leave is appropriate but not covered by existing leave provisions, the President may grant an employee(s) administrative leave.

II. Involuntary Leave

Administrative leave may be required of an employee by the College at times deemed necessary for the successful operation of the College, including, but not limited to:

A. Emergency situations

B. Pending the results of a college investigation, a dismissal decision, and/or a non-reappointment

C. For any other reason deemed appropriate by the College.

In the discretion of the College, an employee may be placed on paid or unpaid administrative leave at any time, including, but not limited to, pending the results of a College investigation or the final decision of a dismissal recommendation, but all benefits shall remain in effect. If an employee is placed on unpaid administrative leave and found “Not Responsible” as the result of a College investigation or the final decision of a dismissal is overturned, the College will pay the employee for wages missed during the unpaid administrative leave.
