Jacksonville State University offers a variety of generous and flexible leave benefits to all eligible employees. The University recognizes that all employees should enjoy occasional time away from work using vacation and holiday time, and that both personal and medical situations may temporarily interfere with an employee's ability to work. All leave, other than emergencies, must be approved by the supervisor in advance. For more information, visit Leave Administration Page.

The Teachers' Retirement System (TRS) provides benefits to qualified members employed by state-supported educational institutions, including public employees of K-12 school systems, two-year Community Colleges, four-year higher education institutions, and state education agencies.

JSU is not subject to the Worker’s Compensation Laws of Alabama. However, JSU provides certain benefits for job-related injuries. On-the-job injuries requiring medical treatment are covered under the employee’s personal health insurance contract. Employees may file a claim with the State Board of Adjustment to be reimbursed for co-insurance, deductibles, and non-covered items. For information, visit On-The-Job-Injury.
