As part of ongoing efforts to manage expenses and assist employees with work-life balance, The University of Toledo once again will offer voluntary summer leave and reduced work schedules to eligible employees.

Starting in May, academic employees (including college departmental), non-hospital administrative and staff employees on all campuses may take advantage of programs allowing voluntary, unpaid leaves of absence and reduction in work hours.

“The University highly encourages eligible employees and departments to explore this opportunity,” said Wendy Davis, associate vice president and chief human resources officer. “It’s a great way for employees to spend extra time with loved ones and rejuvenate before fall semester, while also helping the University to reduce labor expenditures in departments where workloads are usually lighter during the summer.”

The program is available to eligible staff from May through August. Employees must obtain prior approval from their supervisor, based on their department’s business needs.

Request forms and details regarding changes in benefits, sick and vacation time accruals, retirement contributions, and other related topics are explained in the Voluntary Summer Reduced Hours information on Human Resources’ webpage here.
