Unapproved Leave

Information for second-level teachers in Ireland.

In the case of absence from school (other than approved absence) on days on which the school is open during a particular month, a proportional deduction in respect of such absence shall be made in the incremental salary otherwise payable to the teacher. One day’s unapproved absence may mean a loss of 1/365 of a year’s credit for pension and gratuity purposes.
