Policy Manual

Sick Leave Without Pay

Any employee unable to return to work after exhausting all accumulated sick leave and accrued vacation leave may be granted sick leave without pay for a period not to exceed one (1) year. Furthermore, such approved sick leave shall allow the employee the right to elect to continue his or her group insurance benefits, and the institution will continue its share of the cost for such period. All other benefits are prohibited which otherwise would accrue to the employee. The employee's supervisor, the appropriate vice president and the President must approve such sick leave without pay. While on sick leave without pay, the employee must notify the Office of Human Resources or their supervisor regarding the change in status immediately.
