Sick Pay


Although faculty do not accrue a specific number of sick days per year, it is the policy of the University to pay faculty members for a reasonable number of days missed due to short-term illnesses.


Full and part-time, regular and term staff members are eligible to accrue sick pay. Sick pay begins accruing on the first day of employment, but cannot be used until the staff member has completed three months of active employment. Full-time, regular and full-time term staff members accrue 3.692 hours of sick pay per pay period of active employment. Part-time, regular and part-time term staff members accrue sick pay on a pro rata basis, based upon their FTE designation. Accrued sick pay carries over from year to year. However, sick pay is not a vested benefit. Staff members do not receive pay for unused accrued sick pay at separation of employment.
