                                               Montana University System  (Revised)


EXPLANATION:                 The recent fires underscored the need for a policy which sets forth the conditions under which employees should be granted annual leave or other paid time off when affected by a personal disaster or emergency, or when they wish to provide volunteer services.  The university system has adopted most of the other leave policies used by executive branch agencies.
