§ 2-217.05. Request for sick or funeral leave.  

Latest version.
  • (a) To be eligible to receive pay for sick or funeral leave, the employee shall notify his immediate supervisor or department head as soon as possible but not less than one (1) hour prior to the time set for beginning the employee's shift. This provision may be waived by the department head if the employee submits evidence satisfactory to the department head that it was impossible to give such notification.

    (b) Frequent claiming of sick leave, such as using sick leave as it accrues or showing a pattern of taking sick leave on Fridays or Mondays, constitutes evidence of malingering or deliberate abuse of sick leave and as such will result in disciplinary action.
