Administrative Personal Leave
What Is Administrative Personal Leave?
For situations where FMLA does not apply, many employers choose to have an Administrative Personal Leave policy. This policy will generally look like FMLA, covering a shorter period of time. However, employers have the discretion to design such a policy however they wish.
Keep in mind that the definition of “Administrative Personal Leave” varies by organization and can even have a negative connotation, depending on the circumstances.
