Leave of Absence (LOA) Toolkit                                                 

Aerospace’s leave policies are designed to help employees when career and personal situations collide.

Requesting a Leave of Absence

There are a number of reasons you may need to request leave from work, many of them having to do with your health or the health of a loved one, or perhaps you’re welcoming a new child into your family. We know work/life balance is important at these critical times, which is why Aerospace offers generous leave of absence benefits—paid and unpaid—to our employees.

By formally requesting certain types of leave you may be able to ensure job protection, as well as wage replacement and continuation of benefits.

The process for some types of leave, particularly those administered by the state, can take time. We suggest you start the claim process immediately to minimize delays.

First Steps:

  1. Notify your manager of your request (you do not have to disclose medical information). 
  2. File a formal request with The Hartford (888.980.9382). 
  3. If this is a work-related illness or injury, immediately contact the Security Control Center (24/7) at 310.336.6520 for El Segundo or 571.304.7220 in Chantilly. 

See additional instructions for requesting a Leave of Absence.
