Leaves of Absence

UB and the state of New York understand that the health and well-being of you and your family, your citizenship and your professional standing can be as important to you as your employment.

Research Foundation Leaves

The Research Foundation (RF) offers its employees a variety of leave options. Some are offered as paid leave; others are unpaid. Employment status also affects the availability of leave. The SUNY RF employee portal for Life Events — Leave of Absence is a complete source of information, but don't forget to contact your HR leave expert to initiate certain leaves as well as answer any questions.
