Employees working less than 40 hours per week will earn sick leave on a prorated basis. Leave can be taken for personal illness and illness of individuals closely related to the employee.

Voluntary Shared Leave

An employee may donate leave to an employee who has been approved to receive voluntary shared leave because of a medical condition of the employee or of a member of the employee’s immediate family that will require the employee’s absence for a prolonged period of time. This policy outlines the rules for sharing leave.
