From time-to-time employees will miss work due to illness or injury. The University provides an accrued sick time benefit intended to offer employees paid time off to deal with minor, short-term illnesses or injuries as well as allow longer-term employees enough banked leave to cover a short-term disability. Employees are expected to accurately report sick time and avoid excessive or unexcused absences. Employees may use up to five sick days per calendar year to care for ill family members in some circumstances. The University does not discriminate or retaliate against employees for taking Family and Medical Leave or having a protected disability requiring use of accrued sick time.
