Discretionary Leave

Discretionary leave is paid time off from work that a department or division head may award to a professional staff employee to recognize noteworthy achievement and work effort that have significantly contributed to the unit's mission, goals and/or objectives. Up to six days of discretionary leave may be awarded per calendar year.

The UW Professional Staff Program has complete details on the award and use of discretionary leave.
