Unpaid. Absences. If a Clinical Laboratory bargaining unit member is on unpaid status with the Employer (e.g., unpaid leave of absence, layoff, unpaid disciplinary status) for an entire pay period, there will be no accumulation of PTO/ESL for that pay period. "Unpaid status" means that there were no "paid straight-time hours" in that pay period.
