Employees in a leave without pay status who are unable to return to work because they are no longer able to perform the essential functions of their positions may not continue in a leave without pay status for more than one (1) year. Specifically, these are employees who have exhausted all other available options, including their annual, sick and compensatory leave balances, the protection offered in accordance with the Family and Medical Leave Act, Sick Leave Bank grants, sick leave transfer, worker's compensation and reasonable accommodations offered under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAA). These employees may not have been released from their doctors to return to work, or may have been released with limitations that prevent them from performing the essential job functions.
