Sick Leave Procedure

Eligible employees may use accumulated sick leave for periods of illness. Employees on extended periods of illness may request wage continuation if they qualify for this short-term disability benefit (D-721.00/D-721.01). Wage continuation shall run concurrently with Family Medical Leave (D-722.00/D-722.01) in cases where the employee is eligible for both.

Accumulated sick leave may be used for medical appointments. It may also be used for Family Care Leave in accordance with Policy D-723.00 and for Personal Business Leave in accordance with Policy D-725.00.

The use of sick leave must be approved by the supervisor and reported to Human Resources using the appropriate form or online time sheet.

If any provision(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provision(s).
