§ 6.20.050. Sick leave—Limitations.  

Latest version.
  • A.

    When an employee has exhausted all sick leave benefits to which he may be entitled under Sections 6.20.010 through 6.20.040, and in the event that he does not return to work, he shall not be entitled to additional sick leave benefits except as may be provided in Section 6.20.060.



    Sick leave at part pay shall not be allowed to any person until all full-pay sick leave has been used.


    Effective January 1, 1980, sick leave at part pay shall not be used until after five consecutive calendar days, commencing with the first day of absence from work, due to any single illness or injury, unless such illness or injury results in hospitalization, in which case part-pay sick leave, subject to subsection C below, may be used from the first day of such hospitalization.


    Effective beginning on and after April 1, 2010, or such later date as may be determined by the Chief Administrative Officer when the human resources management system reflecting this provision is implemented, sick leave at part pay shall be allowed commencing with the first day of absence from work due to any illness or injury, subject to subsection B.1 above and subsections C, D and E below.


    A person who is compelled to be absent because of sickness or injury, or for non-emergency medical or dental care, may elect to take time off on vacation, or compensatory time for overtime or holidays worked rather than sick leave, except that a person on part-pay sick leave must remain on such leave until it is exhausted, and may not elect any other types of leave unless authorized by his department head. Retroactive adjustments to previously used part-pay sick leave in order to accrue full-pay leave benefits are prohibited.


    No compensation shall be paid under this section and Sections 6.20.010 through 6.20.040 and 6.20.060 for any period in excess of the time such person has been in county service.


    Sick-leave compensation for persons employed on a daily basis shall be computed on a five-day workweek basis, unless such person actually works more than five days per week.
