Sick Leave

Full-time Faculty and Counselors accrue sick leave at the rate of one day per month for each month of his/her contract period (9-month or 12-month).  Academic Advisors accrue sick leave in accordance with Procedures Memorandum VI-13.

Accrued sick leave permits continuation of full pay during absence due to: 

  • Disability caused by a medical condition of the employee;
  • The need to prevent exposure of co-workers and the public to contagious disease;
  • The need of the employee to obtain dental or medical care;
  • The illness or injury of a member of the employee's "immediate family" defined as father, mother, current spouse, dependent children, stepchildren, and any relative living in the household of the employee; or
  • Adoption of a child when that child requires the personal care and presence of the employee.

A description of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provisions, which may apply in some cases, is available in Human Resources. 

Upon retirement, an employee age of 59 or older with a minimum total point score of 70 (employee’s age at retirement plus years of regular employment with the College), the College will payout a portion of his/her unused sick leave at the employee's current daily rate according to the following chart:
