The university provides several kinds of leaves of absence to employees who are unable to work due to disability, illness, or medical condition. These include sick leave (rule 3339-4-05 of the Administrative Code), family and medical leave (rule 3339-4-07 of the Administrative Code), and personal leave (rule 3339-04-08 of the Administrative Code).
Members of the instructional and unclassified administrative staff may be entitled to disability benefits if they are unable to work due to disability. These benefits include:
(A) University-provided long-term-disability insurance; and
(B) State teachers retirement system or the Ohio public employees retirement system disability retirement benefits (note that the alternative retirement plan does not provide disability benefits); and
(C) Workers' compensation for a covered injury or occupational disease.
All disability benefits are subject to the qualifications and terms of the relevant plan.
