Hello!

So I know most hospitals' WSNA contracts are similar but I'm wondering something: In the contracts I've seen there are provisions for unpaid leave for military, education, childbirth. What about volunteering? What if I wanted to to volunteer abroad for three months and then come back to work? I wouldn't want to lose seniority nor benefits. Has any else done something similar?
