Benefits, leaves (study)

  • Mary E. Hunt


Academic life is considered so demanding and stressful, so lacking in time to keep abreast of developments, that a major concern is when one can leave, bow out for a bit, to refresh. These so-called leaves become coveted parts of the academic benefit package, negotiated furiously to wring the most time away possible. There is a certain irony about the fact that in the flurry to get a job, one is negotiating how to leave! Some nonprofit organizations have imitated that model and make a paid leave part of the package for their research and/or administrative people.
