PURPOSE:

To determine when a leave of absence without pay for illness or injury shall be established.

CHARGING FOR TIME MISSED FROM WORK:

When a regular employee is absent from work for illness or injury and the employee has no accumulated sick leave or vacation, the employee will be charged with a "no-pay" day. The employee's paycheck will reflect the time missed from work.

ESTABLISHING A LEAVE OF ABSENCE WITHOUT PAY:

If an employee is absent for illness or injury and has no accrued sick leave or vacation, that employee shall be given "no-pay" days if the absence is for less than ten normal work days. However, if such an absence exceeds nine normal work days, the employee shall be placed on a leave of absence without pay beginning with the first day of such absence.
