POLICY STATEMENT

It is the policy of the University of Louisville to authorize the President or Provost to approve medical leave with pay for up to one-half year of base salary (six months for those on annual appointment; one semester for those on academic year appointment) for administrators. Justification for the medical leave must be documented by medical evidence satisfactory to the President or Provost. The approved leave shall be reported to the Board of Trustees for informational purposes only. 

An administrator will be granted a second paid medical leave for a condition unrelated to the condition which was the basis for the prior leave, unless the person has been back to work for three months or longer.  If the person has been back to work for less than three months and the medical condition is the same, a second paid medical leave will not be granted.
