Sick leave with pay accrues for full-time, regular faculty at the rate of 15 days per year. The maximum sick leave accumulation is 130 days. Once sick leave has been used, a faculty member is entitled to benefits under the Family Medical Leave Act. For details of eligibility consult the Office of Business and Finance.

Sick leave may be used for personal accidental injury, illness, or pregnancy, or accidental injury or illness of the employee's immediate family. "Immediate family" shall include spouse, mother, father, children, brother, sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandparents or grandchildren of employee or spouse, or a person living in the employee's home who is part of the family.

All time lost from work because of personal illness or disability will be charged to earned sick leave. In the case of extended illness or disability, and after all sick leave has been used including Family Medical Leave Act benefits, the employee will be placed on "Leave Without Pay" until the employee recovers sufficiently to perform regular duties and returns to work. A release from the doctor must be filed in the Office of Business and Finance before returning from extended illness or disability.

The Division Chair will be notified when a faculty member is unable to continue working because of illness. The chair will arrange for classes to be staffed and will report arrangements to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
