Paid Sick Leave:
Sick leave is accrued by all University employees appointed one-half (1/2) time or more at a rate of up to eight (8) hours per month. Sick leave may be used only for personal or family medical purposes. Unused sick leave may be accumulated without limit. Active employees may transfer up to twenty-four (24) hours per year to the University's Sick Leave Pool for use by other employees facing medical emergencies.
Sick Leave Pool:
Employees are eligible to apply to use Sick Leave Pool hours, in the event of a catastrophic injury or illness, and if the employee has exhausted all paid leave. A catastrophic illness or injury is a sever condition or combination of conditions affecting the mental or physical health or the employee or the employee's immediate family that requires the services of a licensed practitioner for a prolonged period of time and that forces the employee to exhaust all leave time earned by that employee and to lose compensation from the University for the employee. The employee may transfer a maximum of twenty-four (24) hours of sick leave to the Pool each fiscal year and may not designate a specific person to receive their contribution.
