Sick Leave

Eligible employees are entitled to use sick leave. Employees may begin to use their sick leave accruals immediately upon hire with no waiting period. Sick leave accruals are earned at a rate of eight (8) hours per month for a full-time employee and earned proportionally down to 50% effort.  For example, a 50% effort employee will earn four sick leave hours per month.

If an employee is on leave the first day of the month, the employee will not be able to use the leave accrued for that month until he or she returns to work.  An employee does not accrue sick leave for any full calendar month in which he or she is on leave without pay.  Accumulation of sick leave is unlimited.  Any unused accumulated sick leave is carried forward at the end of each fiscal year.
