Types of leave

Sometimes life requires you to take care of pressing personal, family, educational, medical and/or civic needs or obligations. BP may grant leaves of absence to help you during these times. The leaves are typically for one pay period, or two weeks or more, depending on your circumstances, and generally require your supervisor's approval. For the most part, the leaves are unpaid.

Depending on the type of leave you take, you can continue some of your BP health and protection benefits during the leave. Credited service will continue to accrue while you're on any of these leaves, unless you're an intern/co-op on an educational leave.
