“Paid sick days” means time that is compensated at the same rate as the employee normally earns during regular work hours.


Maximum Balances

Eligible staff members may not accrue more than 3 days (24 hours) of sick leave at any time. Accrued unused sick time will not be paid at the time of termination.



Eligible staff members may use sick leave beginning on the 90th days of employment or immediately if the 90 days have been previously met.
