Sick Leave Process

Eligible faculty, academic staff and senior fellows may use up to 90 calendar days of paid sick leave each academic year. Paid sick leave will not be approved in excess of what is authorized by the employee’s healthcare provider.   Paid sick leave is usually taken at the same time as Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave.

Eligibility and benefits are explained on the sick leave page for faculty and academic staff.

 Paid Sick Leave Request Process:

  1. The employee notifies the unit that they plan to take a leave of absence.
  2. The employee and their healthcare provider complete the leave certification form and submit it to Academic Human Resources (AHR).
  3. AHR notifies the unit and the employee of eligibility for paid sick leave.
  4. The unit enters the appropriate paid sick leave dates in payroll.
