Approval of Mission Leave Usage from the Mission Leave Policy:  “Employees must request approval for Mission Leave in writing to their supervisor with specific information on the activity/event and their role/participation in it, and the amount of time requested. The needs of the department as well as the opportunity for the employee will be considered in the approval process. Factors such as office coverage, minimum staffing levels, vacations, sick leave, unplanned absences, special projects, and peak workloads will be considered. Final decisions will be made by the Vice President of the respective division.”
