Sick leave is earned at four hours per pay period with maximum carryover of 12 days at the end of the calendar year. Any accrued sick leave balance has no monetary value at termination of employment.
An employee may use sick leave when he or she must be absent because self, spouse, children (in your household), or dependent parents are sick or have doctors’ appointments. If an employee must be absent, the immediate supervisor should be contacted as soon as possible.
Special circumstances that might work hardship on the employee should be referred to the immediate supervisor and the HR Director.
