Employees eligible to accrue sick leave, excluding indeterminate time and employees in the Scholars Program, may be granted an advance of two weeks of sick leave to cover their own illness or to care for an ill family member. A sick leave advance may only be granted to an employee who has less than 80 hours of sick leave accrued at the time of the request. When using sick leave, accrued sick leave will be used and exhausted prior to use of the advanced sick leave. The sick leave advance is effective the Sunday prior to the request date and can be used as early as the week requested; retroactive requests are not permitted.
