1) How much general leave do I earn?
All full time staff earn 8 hours per pay period.  Those staff with an FTE (full time equivalent) of less than 1.0 will receive a prorated amount of general leave. Top
2) What can I use my general leave for?
General leave can be used to take time off work due to your own illness, or to care for an immediate family member who is ill, for doctor’s appointments, or for other personal appointments that cannot be handled outside the school day. 

Per Policy (G-2550 GCCA: Professional/ Support Staff General Leave) Family is defined as spouse, grandparents, children, grandchildren, parents, like relations created by marriage (e.g., stepchild, father-in-law, etc.), and siblings.

There are certain days when general leave cannot be used – these are designated as “Blackout Days”. Click here for the Blackout calendar. Absences on these dates will require documentation if you want to use your general leave.  Otherwise, the time off will be without pay. 

General leave cannot be used for more than three (3) consecutive work days without documentation for the leave.  If you need to be off work for an extended period of time due to serious illness or surgery, or to care for a family member with a serious illness or who is having surgery, please see Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave below.

3) How can I transfer to a different position within the District?
First, go to the HUSD website and check the job postings under the “Employment” tab.  If there is a position posted that you are qualified for and interested in, please apply for that position through the online application process.  If you were hired after June 2010, you should have an application saved in the application system.  Make sure your application is updated.  While you are in your application, go to “Job Postings”, "Job Categories", choose the job position you are interested in and click "To Apply for Job Position" at the top.

9) How do I request a Family Medical Leave Act leave (FMLA)?

FMLA is a federal entitlement which guarantees 12 weeks of leave from work for your own serious medical condition or if you are needed to care for a family member with a serious medical condition.  FMLA also provides job protection.  For further information see the FMLA guide on the Benefits page.

If you have a serious illness or need surgery which will require an absence of more than 5 days from work, you should request an FMLA leave.  If you know about the need for the absence prior to start of the absence, please contact Isabel Herrera in Benefits as soon as possible.  She will be able to assist you with the process and forms.  The forms are on the HUSD website under Human Resources, Benefits, Forms. 

FMLA has specific eligibility requirements so not all employees will be eligible for FMLA.  An employee who is not eligible for FMLA can apply for a leave of absence.Top

10) How do I request a leave of absence?

The approval or denial of a leave of absence is strictly at the discretion of the Superintendent and the Governing Board.  A leave of absence does not provide job protection, meaning that the District does not have to hold your job for you until you return from your leave.  The District may elect to fill your position on a permanent basis in your absence. Top
