Generally, annual leave and leave without pay are discretionary based
on the needs of the office and could be denied based on the importance
of focusing on improving performance in the time allotted. However,
sick leave, supported by acceptable documentation, must be approved as
long as the employee follows agency procedures for requesting the leave.
As noted earlier, you should be aware of certain programs under the
Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and the Family Friendly Leave Act
of 1994 that may require you to approve leave.
