§ 35.31  OTHER LEAVES.
   (A)   General. All other leaves shall be granted by the Board of Works on a case-by-case basis in formal meetings. Such leaves may or may not be granted with compensation for time missed by the employee. Whenever possible, the employee shall contact the Controller’s office in advance of such absences so that a determination can be made prior to the absence. The employee shall clearly state that the leave is not permanent. Generally speaking, the Board of Works shall take a more understanding view of absences which can be ruled upon prior to the situation.
   (B)   Education. Qualified employees may be considered for educational leaves of absence if related to current or future jobs within the city.
