The New LOA Model

  • Simple and intuitive

  • Leave team manages LOAs from active duty

  • Leave initiators critical to smooth process

  • Developing online guidebook for handling leave requests

  • Understanding FMLA is important


The new loa model1

The New LOA Model

  • Leave of Absence defined as absence of greater than 5 days (excluding vacation)

  • Absence <5 days that subsequently goes beyond 5 days = LOA from day 1

  • Same event if RTW < 20 days

  • New event if RTW > 20 days

  • Non-emergency - docs due 14 days before

  • Emergency – docs due 14 days after
