Sick Leave Pool

Sick Leave Pool is a program that assists employees who have exhausted all other Leave due to a catastrophic illness or injury to themselves or an immediate family member.

  • Employees must be benefits-eligible (Salaried full and part-time).
  • Sick leave pool provides a maximum lifetime benefit of 720 hours.
  • Employees eligible for Workers Compensation Insurance (WCI) benefits are not eligible for the sick leave pool.  
  • An employee eligible for sick leave pool must exhaust all of their accruals before pool will be awarded.
  • Any unused hours will be returned to the pool.
  • Current employees may make voluntary contributions of accrued sick leave hours to the sick leave pool at any time.
  • Terminating employees may donate all or a portion of their sick Leave.
