Paid sick leave provides eligible employees with a means of financial security during periods when medical conditions of an employee or his or her family member, or other reasons as described below make it impossible for the employee to work.
Regular and extended temporary staff employees earn sick leave, beginning from the first day of employment, according to the following schedule, and may be used as accrued:
A family member (per the Act) is defined as a spouse, registered domestic partner, son or daughter (biological, adopted, foster, stepchild, legal ward, grand child or a child of a person standing in loco parentis), siblings (including step-siblings, half-siblings, and siblings in law), a parent (including step-parents or a person who has acted in loco parentis), a parent of a spouse, spouses of children, and spouses of siblings, and a person who has co-habitated with the employee for at least 12 months.
Employees may also use annual leave for the reasons set forth in this policy.
Sick leave may not be borrowed in advance unless approved through the Sick Leave Loan Program.
Faculty members do not accrue sick leave but can choose to take leave to which they are entitled as faculty members for the reasons and using the notification procedures set forth in this policy, or for the reasons and using the notification procedures set forth in the faculty handbook.
Faculty members who have not accrued sick leave and who are transferred to staff status within their division are credited with a bank account of nine days of sick leave for every full year of continuous service at Gallaudet. Prior service is not recognized when establishing the bank of sick leave.
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
