Leave of Absence

The Leave Without Pay Fact Sheet provides information for employees considering taking an unpaid leave of absence.

Benefit Continuation and Billing when on an Unpaid Leave - When on an extended unpaid leave, employees are responsible for paying benefit premiums for any continuing benefits during the leave via Direct Billing with UC Path Center. Upon approval of an Unpaid Leave where benefit continuation elections and direct billing will be necessary, the AP Leave Administrator will provide employees with directions regarding benefit elections, the steps necessary to initiate the Direct Billing process, and a summary of applicable premiums. Employees are responsible for following the necessary steps to either elect or waive benefits, and set up Direct Billing with UC Path Center during any applicable unpaid leave. Questions regarding Direct Billing should be addressed to the UCPath Center at 855-982-7284.
