What Is Educational Leave

An Educational Leave is an unpaid leave available to employees for the purpose of pursuing further education beneficial to the performance of the employee’s current position, related positions, or a position to which the employee could reasonably expect to attain within the Company upon completion of further education. It is within Marathon’s sole discretion to make these determinations.

Who Is Eligible

All regular full and part-time employees may be eligible to request an Educational Leave. Requesting a leave does not necessarily guarantee approval.

What Forms You Need to Complete

Along with the request form below, please attach additional documentation that supports the Educational Leave.

Coverage in certain benefit plans may be continued upon required approval and if contributions are prepaid. Please refer to Benefit Status for Leaves of Absence for additional information.

Reminder: Please ensure accurate time entry is addressed during any period of Educational Leave. “No Pay” is the correct payroll code during period of unpaid Educational Leave.

Please note: Participation in Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) will be suspended as of the leave commencement date.
