Leave of Absence

A leave of absence (LOA) is a period of time away from your job while still holding your position from the period the leave starts to when you return. It’s different from other forms of absences like vacations or holidays, in that, a leave of absence is typically used when if you or your family member has a medical condition preventing you from working all or some of your regular work schedule.
