Have you ever thought about what would happen if you had an unexpected illness or injury that caused you to be unable to work? You still need to a paycheck, but you can’t work… then your sick leave and annual leave are used up? Are you in the Sick Leave Bank?
The UTC Sick Leave Bank is a common pool of hours to which staff and 12-month faculty donate some of their accumulated leave. The sick leave bank shall provide emergency sick leave to member employees who have suffered disability due to an unplanned personal illness, injury, or quarantine and who have exhausted their compensatory time and personal, sick, and annual leave balances.
Employees may join the Sick Leave Bank during the enrollment period (April 1 – June 30). Any regular staff or 12-month faculty member, who accrues sick leave and has a current sick leave balance of at least 48 hours on June 30, is eligible to join for a donation of 24 hours. The sick leave balance requirement is prorated for part-time employees. Read MORE..
