OSU employees “…who suffer individual, personal misfortune as a result of an event such as fire, explosion, flood or violent weather, will be granted up to three working days of paid administrative leave, if the event occurs while the employee is not on leave without pay”.  This is explained in OSU Policy and Procedure 3-0713, Attendance and Leave for Staff, section 7.01D.Catastrophe Leave.  An employee who requires more than three days to take care of such a personal misfortune may request use of accrued annual leave at the discretion of his/her department head or supervisor.
