CENTRALIZED LEAVE SERVICES
Absence and Leave Management
For eligible employees at Oklahoma State University
Leave situations vary, and can be very confusing and overwhelming at times. Our office handles leave requests and assistance with paperwork processing for certain leave requests. The following provides you with information on what leave types we manage, how they are managed, and how our department can help.
- GENERAL LEAVE BENEFITS
OSU offers many different leave options for eligible employees and includes procedures for inclement weather and other types of leave situations.
- UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION
Federal and state laws determine the eligibility requirements and the type of coverage for these benefits. Students may be exempt from some benefits.
Unemployment Compensation Insurance
The provisions of the Oklahoma Employment Security Act apply to most OSU employees. OSU pays the full cost of these benefits. The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission determines eligibility of a terminated employee for unemployment benefits based upon the circumstances of the termination.

To improve safety of employees, reduce workers’ compensation claims, ensure excellent care for our employees, and contain costs, the University has changed some of the processes involved in workers’ compensation administration.

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is an unpaid leave which provides job protection and insurance premium sharing for eligible employees for serious medical conditions.

- MILITARY LEAVE
OSU supports employees who serve in state or national military units and provides employment protections, rights, and benefits to those employees who serve our country.
