Employees shall provide at least 30 days advance notice if the need for the leave is foreseeable. If 30 days’ notice is not practicable because of a situation outside of the employee's control, notice must be given as soon as practicable. Except in extraordinary circumstances, employees are expected to give notice within no less than one or two working days of learning of the need for leave.

If an employee fails to give 30 days’ notice for foreseeable leave with no reasonable excuse for the delay, the University may deny the taking of leave until at least 30 days after the date the employee provided notice.
