Leave of absence from government jobs
I also had a co-worker who asked for and received six months. I don't know the details but I assume it was similar...they considered her valuable and wanted her to come back.
Remember the government hiring process can take a long time. You may even be back before they'll be able to find a replacement. That's probably your best selling point.
I asked my HR director about my chances for getting a one-year leave and she said it
was 99.9% chance I wouldn't get it!
I get what you mean about it taking a long time to fill a position but these days I'm
sure the sharks are already circling my cube. Especially since we have a hiring freeze
going on right now. I guess I'm out of luck but I don't care cause I'm going anyway!
Oh, they did say they were big on rehiring former employees and that I had a good
rep. I guess that's something!
Actually I think the hiring freeze should enhance your chances. If they can't hire anyone to replace you, then why not give you a leave of absence?
