Sick Leave

  • System Regulation 31.03.02 provides information for leave-eligible employees in relation to sick leave.
  • Employees begin accruing at a rate of eight hours of paid sick leave each month.
  • Employees who work at least halftime but less than full-time earn a proportional number of sick leave hours each month. 
  • Upon employment, eligible employees earn their first eight hours (proportional for part-time) of sick leave on their first day of work and may use that leave immediately for qualifying needs.
  • Employees earn additional sick leave on the first day they are actively at work each month.
  • Up to eight hours of sick leave may be used each fiscal year to attend parent-teacher conferences for the employee's children in prekindergarten through 12th grade.
