Policy: Non-exempt employees with a serious health condition (as defined by the Family and Medical Leave Act) who have exhausted their personal sick time allowance may apply to the Director of Human Resources to “access” the campus emergency sick time bank for additional paid sick time. The emergency sick time bank is not available to administrative staff or faculty. Use of the emergency sick time bank is limited to support staff employees
In no event will any award(s) allow an employee to use over 1040 hours (including any hours used from his/her personal sick time). To apply for hours from the campus emergency sick time bank, complete the application and submit it to Human Resources. **PLEASE NOTE: An employee who is out of work due to a workplace accident or illness (and eligible for workers' compensation benefits) is not eligible to receive an award from the Emergency Sick Time bank.
After meeting the initial criteria and submitting an application, awards are determined based on the number of hours available in the bank, the number of overall requests, and the total number of hours previously awarded to the employee.
Non-exempt employees may donate up to 100 hours of sick time per calendar year to the campus emergency sick time bank providing they keep at least 500 hours of sick time in their own bank. When an employee leaves employment at the College, he/she may donate up to one half of the hours in his/her personal sick time bank to the campus emergency sick time bank. To donate hours, complete the donation application and submit it to Human Resources.
