Section 50. Use of personal leave

2 AAC 08.050. Use of personal leave

(a) Accrued personal leave is available for use after an employee has completed 30 continuous calendar days of employment. Personal leave may be granted at any time business permits with the prior approval of the employee's supervisor.

(b) Personal leave for medical reasons must be granted if the supervisor is satisfied that the employee is absent for a "medical reason" as defined in AS 39.20.225 (b) or for family leave under AS 39.20.305 , except that family leave need not be granted to two employees simultaneously for a serious health condition of the parent or child of two employees. Employees must provide prior notice of foreseeable use of family leave to the principal executive officer of their agencies and must make reasonable efforts to schedule family leave so as not to unduly disrupt the state's operations in accordance with AS 39.20.305 (b). Family leave for pregnancy and childbirth, or the placement of a child, other than the employee's stepchild, with the employee for adoption may be taken on an intermittent or reduced schedule basis until the employee has recovered from the incapacity of delivery or the child has been placed for adoption. Thereafter, family leave shall be taken in a single block of time.

(c) If wage continuation payments are made to an employee under the Alaska Workers' Compensation Act (AS 23.30), the amount of those payments will be deducted from payments for personal leave. The employee's accrued personal leave account will be charged only to the extent that payments are made for personal leave.

(d) Leave use by an employee who is receiving a higher rate of pay under 2 AAC 07.333 shall be at the employee's normal rate of pay that would apply absent the delegation to perform essentially all the duties of a specific position in a higher range.
