If I’m afraid of catching the pandemic influenza and don’t want to come to work, what are my leave options?
An employee who is healthy may request annual leave for the period of absence from his or her job. An employee has a right to take annual leave, subject to the right of the supervisor to schedule the time at which annual leave may be taken. In addition, depending on the particular circumstances, an employee may request advanced annual leave or other paid time off, such as earned compensatory time off, earned compensatory time off for travel, or earned credit hours. An employee may also request leave without pay. Employees should consult with their agency human resources office to determine how their agency policy applies to their situation.
