Paid Sick Leave Employees covered by this Agreement shall earn and be granted sick leave of absence with pay under the following conditions and qualifications:
Bereavement/Tangihanga Leave 14.1 The employer shall approve special bereavement leave on pay for an employee to discharge any obligation and/or to pay respects to a Tupapaku/deceased person with whom the employee has had a close association. Such obligations may exist because of blood or family ties or because of particular cultural requirements such as attendance at all or part of a Tangihanga (or its equivalent). The length of time off shall be at the discretion of the employer and should not be unreasonably withheld and will be exercised in accordance with the Holidays Act 2003.
Family Sick Leave Employees may also be granted use of accumulated sick leave by their appointing authority because of illness of the employee's father, mother, brother, sister, wife, husband, child, grandparent, or grandchild, eligible domestic partner or child of eligible domestic partner provided in the judgment of the appointing authority an emergency condition exists. In exceptional cases, such leave may be granted in the event of illness of an employee's father-in-law or mother-in-law, or father or mother of an employee’s eligible domestic partner, when it can be demonstrated that a bona fide illness exists which warrants the employee's personal attendance during her/his normally scheduled working hours. The appointing authority may require a physician's certificate or other substantiating evidence that such illness of one of the above listed family members exists. This provision shall be applied in accordance with the Family Medical Leave Act and all other applicable State and Federal laws.

Such request must be made thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of short-term disability payments. Extended sick leave may continue for up to eighteen (18) months from the employee’s last day worked. The time period may be extended by mutual agreement of the University and the POAM. If the employee is released to return to work during his/her extended sick leave, he/she will be offered the next available position for which he/she is qualified.
