To permit an employee to charge time off to accumulated sick leave rather than accumulated vacation, when an employee is hospitalized while on scheduled vacation.
If an employee returns from scheduled vacation and reports that he/she was hospitalized while on vacation, that employee will be permitted to charge the time spent in the hospital to accumulated sick leave under the following conditions:
An employee who elects to use accumulated vacation at the beginning of a layoff, and who is hospitalized while using vacation time, will continue to charge the time as vacation, not to exceed the employee's accumulated vacation balance.
An employee who is on leave of absence without pay, and who enters the hospital, will not be permitted to receive pay by charging time spent in the hospital to accumulated sick leave.
