Board Policy DEC (LOCAL) NEUTRAL ABSENCE CONTROL If an employee does not return to work after exhausting all available paid and unpaid leave, the District shall provide the employee written notice that he or she no longer has leave available for use. The District shall automatically pursue termination of an employee who has exhausted all available leave, regardless of the reason for the absence (see DF series). The employee’s eligibility for reasonable accommodations, as required by the American with Disabilities Act (see DAA(LEGAL), shall be considered before termination. If terminated, the employee may apply for reemployment with the District.
Leaves and Absences Return to work after extended absence (FMLA, TDL, WC) – Doctor’s release : submit to HR prior to return approval – Doctor’s release with restriction: must be approved by immediate supervisor and submitted to HR prior to return

Substitute for Vacancy Vacancies Process for Substitutes for Vacancies The steps for processing payroll for substitutes for vacancies is the same as for regular substitutes with the exception that a Substitute for Vacancy Request Form must be submitted to Human Resources prior to the Substitutes first working day. Request for vacancy should be submitted to HR to ensure that substitute is Highly Qualified (HQ) and is cleared to fill in for the vacancy especially in the case of special funding which require further approvals. The Payroll Department will not process any payment for Substitutes for Vacancies unless a Substitute for Vacancy Request Form has been submitted to the Human Resource Department and approved.
Absences Jury Duty and Mandatory Court Appearances – If you have an absence for either, then documentation must be provided by the employee and the campus/department is responsible for maintaining it – A copy must be sent to Payroll. Note job # on document. – Notice must include all days of absences – Campus/department will be required to submit documentation if it is requested from Auditor – For a Mandatory Court Appearance, a Subpoena is the only acceptable documentation
Time Clock Unreported Hours The FLSA does not permit an employer to benefit from the work of an employee without compensating them for such work. Therefore, all hours worked must be reported using the Time Clock Plus electronic timekeeping system. Any time spent working while not clocked in (a.k.a. “working off the clock”) is strictly prohibited.
