As part of UT’s continuous efforts to manage expenses and assist employees with work-life balance, the Department of Human Resources and Talent Development will offer voluntary summer leaves and reduced work schedules to eligible employees.

Starting Monday, May 7, academic employees on Health Science Campus and all Main Campus employees may take advantage of programs allowing voluntary, unpaid leaves of absence and reduction in work hours.

The programs are available to staff whose departments typically experience lower workloads from May 7 through Aug. 17. The options allow employees to rejuvenate and spend extra time with their families while helping reduce UT’s labor costs.

Employees are eligible for these programs only with the approvals of their department managers, based on business needs.

Request forms and details regarding changes in benefits, sick and vacation time accruals, and retirement contributions, among others, are explained in the Summer Leave/Voluntary Reduction in Work Hours Program Outline, which is available on the Human Resources and Talent Development website in the Employee’s Toolkit and HR News sections.

Questions may be directed to Human Resources and Talent Development at 419.530.4747.
