(A)   Leave of absence without pay.  The Personnel Officer may grant an employee a leave of absence without pay for a period not to exceed six months. Any leave of absence for a period longer than six months may be approved at the discretion of the City Council. Upon expiration of an approved leave, the employee shall be reinstated in the position held at the time leave was granted. Failure of an employee on leave to report promptly at its expiration shall be cause for discharge. An employee on a leave of absence in excess of two weeks shall not receive or accrue any employee benefits.
   (B)   Attendance.  Employees shall be in attendance at their work in accordance with rules regarding hours of work, holidays and leaves. Failure on the part of an employee, absent without leave, to return to duty after receipt of notice to return shall be cause for discipline. The preceding notwithstanding, an employee absent without leave for three consecu-tive work days shall be discharged unless the employee can present justification acceptable to the city for such absence.
   (C)   Additional employment.  Any full-time employee desiring to accept employment in addition to his city employment shall secure the approval of the appointing authority and Personnel Officer. The employee may be required to furnish proofs that both he or she and the secondary employer will insure against all acts relating to the additional employment and hold the city harmless from liability arising out of the acts. Such approval shall not be given if the employment is incompatible with his or her city responsibilities. The incompatibility may arise from either the time or nature of the outside employment. In determining incompatibility, it shall be recognized that many city positions require employees to be available at times additional to their regular working hours.
