arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Final approval of an application for a leave of absence to engage in study or travel during or for which the applicant is to receive compensation as provided hereinbefore shall not be granted until the applicant has filed with the Chancellor a suitable bond indemnifying the State of California against loss m the event the employee fails to render service in the California State University following the return of the employee from the leave of absence at the rate of one term of service for each term of leave. The bond shall be in the amount of the total salary computed to become due to the applicant during the applicant's leave of absence, except that in the case of an academic employee on sabbatical leave in residence, pursuant to Section 43000, subdivision (d), in which event the bond shall be in the amount of 4/5 of his total salary computed to become due to the applicant during such leave of absence. The bond shall be exonerated if the failure of the employee to return and render the requisite service in the California State University following the employee's leave of absence is not due to the fault of the employee. The obligation to file a bond may be waived by the Chancellor if the Chancellor finds that the interests of the State will be protected by the written agreement of the employee to return to the service of the California State University and render the requisite service therein following the employee's return from the leave of absence. Such agreement shall be accompanied by a statement of assets showing, to the satisfaction of the Chancellor, the employee's capacity to indemnify the State of California against loss in the event that the employee fails, through fault of the employee, to fulfill the agreement.

(b) Compensation granted an employee on leave of absence under this article shall be paid during the leave of absence in the same manner as if the employee were not on leave of absence. The bond shall be exonerated if the failure of the employee to return and render the requisite service is not due to the fault of the employee.

(c) The Chancellor may, upon recommendation of the President, grant to an employee on leave of absence with pay under this article one leave of absence without pay, which shall not exceed one year, and which shall commence at any time following the completion of leave of absence with pay. In addition, the Chancellor may, upon recommendation of the President, grant to such employee a second leave of absence without pay which shall not exceed one year. Time spent on any leave of absence without pay granted pursuant to this subsection shall not be credited toward the service required by this section following a leave of absence with pay.
