Faculty and professional personnel unable to work as a result of illness or injury are eligible to participate in the paid sick leave program.

An allowance of twelve days of paid sick leave is provided each fiscal year for full-time faculty and professional personnel assigned on an academic or fiscal year basis. Paid sick leave allowance may accumulate to a maximum of 90 days.

This policy also applies to full-time contract faculty assigned at least one academic semester. The number of paid sick days allowed is prorated on a semester basis.

Paid sick leave regulations apply only if the person is actively employed at the time of illness. Paid sick leave is to be used only for illness of the faculty member or for the care of a family member during an illness of that family member. The total paid sick leave days used for care of a family member shall not exceed five days in any fiscal year.
