Federal Leave FAQs
UTA Emergency Leave
UTA employees should utilize paid sick and vacation leave for COVID-19-related absences.
Upon recommendation by the Vice President of Human Resources, the President or designate of the University may make a determination on other reasons for emergency leaves and shall grant an emergency leave, when in his/her determination, the employee shows good cause for such leave.
Contact your supervisor if you cannot work remotely and have exhausted all paid leave options and wish to apply for Emergency Leave. Your request must include a statement of good cause for taking Emergency Leave, and an affirmation that you intend to return to work at the conclusion of Emergency Leave. Your supervisor will contact the Vice President of Human Resources to submit the request. The Vice President of Human Resources or designee will notify the employee of the decision electronically.
