802.0801                   LEAVE/SICK LEAVE WITH PAY


To define "employee's immediate family" as described in Item D of Section 802.080l of the Board of Regents Policy Manual.

SICK LEAVE WITH PAY:              

For all regular full-time employees of the University System of Georgia defined in Section 801, sick leave shall be accumulated at the rate of one working day per calendar month of service. Regular part-time employees working one-half time or more will accumulate sick leave in an equivalent ratio to their percentage of time employed. Sick leave for employees shall be cumulative.

Sick leave may be granted at the discretion of the institution and upon approval by the supervisor of an employee's absence for any of the following reasons:

  1. Illness or injury of the employee.
  2. Medical and dental treatment or consultation.
  3. Quarantine due to a contagious illness in the employee's household.
  4. Illness, injury, or death in employee's immediate family requiring the employee's presence. Leave for occurrences in this section will be limited to three days per occurrence. Any deviation from this maximum must be requested in writing from the President or his/her designee. Immediate family is defined as child, wife, husband, mother, father, sister, brother, grandparent, grandchild, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, grandparent-in-law, and any relative who is a member of the employee's household. 

If sick leave is claimed for a continuous period in excess of one week (five working days), a physician's statement is required to permit further claim of sick leave rights by the employee-patient.

A terminating employee shall not accumulate sick leave or be entitled to receive sick pay after the last working day of his or her employment.
