Time Loss

An employee incurs a time loss when the employee is on leave without pay, is on unauthorized leave (absent without permission), or has insufficient leave balances to cover the absence. The employee's paycheck will be reduced by the number of hours of the time loss. When an employee has a time loss, the employee does not accrue annual or sick leave for the pay period in which the time loss occurred. A continuing pattern of time losses should result in the supervisor taking appropriate corrective action.
