Time-off is excused absence with pay, usually for a day or so, not chargeable to any paid leave. Time-off may be announced by the school President for reasons such as inclement weather, or for certain days during the Christmas season and the Holy Week.
In individual cases, absence for a day or so for personal reasons is not chargeable to any paid leave and is considered as leave without pay.
As much as possible, leaves and time-off must be scheduled in advance, taking into consideration the work requirements of the unit.
The leave application should indicate the inclusive dates of the leave period and should be filed and processed before the leave begins. Application for leave forms are available at the HRADO.
