My HR ETL is new and I don't know if she is giving me the correct information. I will be leaving Aug 18-January 7th to a Collage Program/ Collage intern in Florida and asked my HR what I need to do to get on educational leave of absence. She told me I need to call Target pay and benefits to see if they will cover me and then do some paper work when the date is closer. When should I do this paper work and do I need to call Target pay and benefits what department do I ask for when I call them? When should I call them? Now or when it gets closer to Aug?
