Sick Leave

Employees who work at least 30 days within a year are eligible to accrue paid sick leave. The amount of paid sick leave an employee is eligible to accrue is determined by his/her employment status as follows:

Regular full-time employees accrue one day (8 hrs.) of paid sick leave per month, up to a maximum of 12 sick days (96 hrs.) per year, beginning their date of hire. Regular part-time employees earn a pro-rated amount dependent upon their FTE level. Paid sick leave balances may be carried over to the following calendar year and accumulate up to a maximum of 120 days (960 hrs.).

Employees who leave the University, and are rehired within one year from the date of separation, will have previously accrued and unused sick pay leave balances reinstated, up to the maximum allowable. Unused sick leave is not payable upon termination of employment.
