It is a goal of Marquette University to administer and provide leaves of absences to employees, for legitimate purposes. A leave of absence is approved time off from the employee's job for valid medical, personal, family, military, or other circumstances, in accordance with university guidelines, and as required by state and federal regulations.

Employees are encouraged to work with their supervisor or Human Resources if time off work is needed for reasons other than a vacation request or scheduled doctor/dentist appointment.
