FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: OU Public Affairs, (405) 325-1701

NORMAN – University of Oklahoma President David L. Boren announced today that he has authorized up to 15 days paid administrative leave for OU faculty and staff directly affected by the May 19 and 20 tornadoes, eliminating the need for employees to take vacation or sick leave to attend to personal needs.

“All OU employees who have suffered major losses during the recent tornadoes, including those who have suffered the loss of their homes, will be eligible for compassionate administrative leave for up to 15 days,” said Boren.

To help in their recovery efforts, University departments may grant employees this leave if the employee suffered a physical injury as a result of the disaster; a close relative or household member of the employee suffered a physical injury or died as a result of the disaster; or the home of the employee or the employee’s relative was damaged or destroyed as a result of the disaster.

Any OU employee who wishes to apply for this administrative leave should complete an online form located at http://hr.ou.edu return it to their direct supervisor for approvals and processing. Questions about this administrative leave should be directed to the employee’s local campus payroll office.
