Contents:

  • Purpose
  • Charging For Time Missed From Work
  • Establishing a Leave of Absence Without Pay

  • PURPOSE:

    To determine when a leave of absence without pay for illness or injury shall be established.

    CHARGING FOR TIME MISSED FROM WORK:

    When a regular employee is absent from work for illness or injury and the employee has no accumulated sick leave or vacation, the employee will be charged with a "no-pay" day. The employee's paycheck will reflect the time missed from work.

    ESTABLISHING A LEAVE OF ABSENCE WITHOUT PAY:

    If an employee is absent for illness or injury and has no accrued sick leave or vacation, that employee shall be given "no-pay" days if the absence is for less than ten normal work days. However, if such an absence exceeds nine normal work days, the employee shall be placed on a leave of absence without pay beginning with the first day of such absence.
