Sick Leave Bank
Employees may choose to participate in the Sick Leave Bank as a means of obtaining additional sick leave days to avoid loss of compensation due to catastrophic illness or injury of the employee. Catastrophic injury or illness is defined as a life-threatening condition or combination of conditions affecting the mental or physical health of the employee, and includes, but is not limited to, the following: lengthy hospitalizations, necessary surgery requiring a lengthy recovery, an ongoing treatment regimen requiring frequent time off work, or complicated pregnancy requiring bed rest or hospitalization. The catastrophic illness or injury must require the services of a health provider. All regular full-time and regular part-time faculty and staff who are contributors to the Sick Leave Bank, and have legitimately exhausted all of their accumulated sick and vacation leave, may apply for additional sick leave from the bank.
Sick Leave Bank forms can be found on the Support Site.
