Sick leave is provided for employees subject to the provisions and eligibility requirements outlined in the Board of Trustees Regulations or collective bargaining agreements. These guidelines have been established to supplement those regulations and agreements:
Abuse of sick leave or failure to report sick leave in accordance with proper time reporting procedures may be cause for disciplinary action.
If an employee expects to be or is absent because of illness or injury for a period of more than five (5) consecutive working days, the employee or his/her designee shall submit a Family and Medical Leave/Non-FMLA Leave of Absence form covering this time period to the Department of Human Resources. In the absence of this request form, the Department of Human Resources may provisionally designate the use of such sick leave as Family Medical Leave if the employee qualifies. If the employees does not qualify for Family Medial Leave, and has not completed the Non-FMLA form, absences could be considered as unapproved leave time and the employee could subject to disciplinary action.
Sick leave accrual records are maintained in the Department of Human Resources. These records are the only official basis on which sick leave with pay may be granted.
