11.5 Paid Sick Leave

Effective January 1, 2024: Each calendar year, faculty receive a lump sum of 40 hours of paid sick time that they may use pursuant to the Paid Sick Leave Law.  They may use this sick time for themselves or a family member for absences due to illness; for preventive care or diagnoses, care, or treatment of an existing health condition; or for specified purposes related to domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. This sick time does not carry over from one calendar year to the next.  In addition to notifying the department chair or supervisor of the need to take sick leave, the employee should notify Payroll through a HelpSU request. If the need for sick time use is unforeseeable, the employee should provide notice of the need for sick time use as soon as practicable.
