Vacation accrues during any period of service in pay status.
The following types of appointments do not accrue sick leave credits:
Sick leave credits accrue during any period of service in pay status. Sick leave credits do not accrue during terminal vacation, nor is sick leave allowed during terminal vacation.
The maximum usage per year of family caregiving leave includes the current calendar year allowance of up to five days of sick leave (40 hours of sick leave based on full-time employment, pro-rated for part-time), as well as any unused allowance from the previous calendar year, up to 80 hours in total (pro-rated for part-time) for the care of and necessary attention to ill or injured members of the employee's immediate family. Carryover of the unused allowance from the previous year applies to employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement only if the benefit has been negotiated and is contained in the agreement.
Accrued sick leave is to be used for family caregiving leave. Appropriate verification of the status of the ill or injured person may be requested.
In the event that the faculty or staff member does not have accrued sick leave, family caregiving leave is not available. However, the department or unit is encouraged to permit the faculty or staff member to use vacation or leave without pay to respond to family-related responsibilities.
Although sick leave accrues during the first month of employment no usage is permitted until after one month of service.
Retroactive adjustments are not allowed.
