Sick leave is to be used for absences from work when an employee becomes too ill to work or must be absent for valid sick-related reasons. Sick leave can be requested and approved for absences related to an employee’s own illness or injury as well as
medical appointments, and may also be used for absences related to care for a family member and as bereavement leave for the death of a family member.
Additional information on paid sick leave is outlined in the
APSCUF Collective Bargaining Agreement, Article 17: Sick Leave.
