Sabbatical leave

Sabbatical leave is a period of time during which a person continues to be employed by an employer, but does not report to work. Sabbatical leave is typically granted when someone wants to take an extended break from work, either to travel or to engage in educational activities. It is usually granted only after a person has worked for the same employer for an extended period of time. Educational institutions are more likely to offer paid sabbatical leaves, while private employers are more likely to offer unpaid leaves.
