Sick Leave. The employee is eligible for long term disability benefits if provided for in the Collective Agreement. An employee will not receive pay for the first two (2) weeks of any period of absence due to a legitimate illness. The employee may utilize the paid holiday bank as income replacement for absences due to illness, as described in Article (c) above. An employee who is eligible may apply for Employment Insurance for weeks three (3) through seventeen (17) for any absence due to a legitimate illness. The Home will provide the employee with Disability Income Protection as per Article 14.01 (c) for weeks eighteen (18) through thirty (30) for any absence due to a legitimate illness. Employees may be required to provide medical proof of illness for any absence of a scheduled shift, which is neither vacation nor an approved leave of absence.
Sick Leave. On the first day of the contract year each certified employee shall be credited with ten days’ sick leave. These days may be used when it is necessary for a teacher to be absent from his or her duties due to personal accidental injury, illness, pregnancy (see end of article), adoption, or accidental injury or illness in the immediate family without loss of salary. Unused sick leave shall be cumulative up to a total of one hundred eighty (180) days. If an employee has reached 180 days at the end of a fiscal year, the employee will be granted the amount of sick leave per their contract for the next ensuing fiscal year to use during that fiscal year. If after exhausting all sick leave, a teacher is absent from his/her duties due to personal accidental injury, illness or pregnancy, the teacher shall receive the full contract salary less the amount actually paid a substitute teacher for his/her position for an additional period of twenty (20) days. A doctor’s note may be required. After the twenty (20) additional sick leave days are exhausted, the teacher shall be on sick leave without pay. Salary deductions after sick leave days are exhausted shall be according to the daily rate of pay. Any teacher utilizing a sick day will notify the building principal (or someone otherwise as directed by the principal) at least 1 ½ hours prior to the start of the teacher’s work day except in cases of emergency. It is also the teacher's responsibility to leave lesson plans and/or instructions for the substitute prior to the beginning of classes. Sick leave may be used for maternity reasons immediately following the birth or adoption of a newborn not to exceed six weeks unless medical documentation is provided. The district may request medical documentation for any sick leave absences if abuse of leave is suspected. Any employee abusing sick leave policy will be subject to disciplinary action which may include dismissal.

All ten (10) month librarian and counseling faculty members shall accrue sick leave with pay at the rate of twelve and one-half (12.5) days; twelve (12) month librarians shall accrue fifteen (15) days. Each full-time member shall be credited at the commencement of the work year with a full year’s anticipated sick leave accrual. Members who have been credited with a full year’s sick leave days and whose services with Connecticut State University are terminated prior to the end of the contract year for whatever reasons (termination, resignation, or retirement) shall have deducted from their terminal salary the value of sick leave used beyond that which would have been received on a prorated basis, unless in cases of catastrophic or extended illness this provision is waived by the President. All prorated members in the bargaining unit accrue sick leave with pay for continuous service from the date of initial employment at the rate of one and one-fourth (1 1/4) days per calendar month multiplied by the following fraction: the number of hours worked per week divided by thirty-five (35).

Sick Leave. 1. Sick leave credit shall be earned at the rate of one (1) day per calendar month of service. The current practices concerning the earning of sick leave credits shall be continued. Sick leave shall be earned from the employee's date of employment. Sick leave credit shall be earned for any month in which the employee has been in pay status for ten (10) or more workdays or eighty (80) hours. A part-time employee shall earn sick leave in the same proportion as his/her part-time service bears to full-time service. An employee may accumulate unused sick leave up to a maximum of one hundred and twenty (120) days. Employees currently with lapsed sick leave credits shall have such lapsed sick leave added to their accumulated sick leave up to the maximum allowable accumulation of one hundred and twenty (120) days. However, the amount of unused sick leave accruals which can be credited towards State service for retirement purposes shall be ninety (90) days. When the maximum limitation has been accumulated, days that would normally thereafter be earned shall lapse but shall be recorded by the appointing authority. Any employee who has such lapsed sick leave to his/her credit may apply to the Director of Human Resources to have the sick leave restored in the event of an extended illness. The Director of Human Resources at his/her discretion may authorize restoration of all or any part of the lapsed sick leave after thorough investigation, including complete medical reports of the illness requiring the continued absence of the employee.
Sick Leave. A part-time employee shall earn sick leave credits at the rate of one-quarter (1/4) of the number of hours in an employee’s normal workweek for each calendar month in which the employee has received pay for at least twice the number of hours in the employee’s normal workweek.

Sick leave shall be credited as follows: Each member of the instructional staff employed on a full-time basis shall be entitled to four (4) days of sick leave as of the first day of employment of each contract year and shall thereafter earn one (1) day of sick leave for each month of employment, which shall be credited to the member at the end of that month and which shall not be used prior to the time it is earned and credited to the member. However, the member shall be entitled to earn no more than one (1) day of sick leave times the number of months of employment during the year of employment. The maximum number of sick leave days that can be earned is twelve (12). Such leave shall be taken only when necessary because of sickness as herein prescribed. Such sick leave shall be cumulative from year to year. There shall be no limit on the number of days of sick leave a member of the instructional staff may accrue, except that at least one-half of this cumulative leave must be established within the District granting such leave.
