The 2023 Sick Bank Donation program is now open. The 2023 enrollment period will begin today, January 3 and run through January 31, 2023.
WHAT IS THE SICK BANK DONATION PROGRAM?
The Extended Sick Leave Bank provides extended sick leave to participating employees that have experienced a serious or catastrophic illness or injury (not Workers’ Compensation related) and have exhausted all accrued time (Sick, Vacation, Personal, and Compensatory).
The Sick Bank is comprised of sick time donated by fellow City employees. Eligible employees can apply for this time on a first-come, first-served basis and time will be awarded at the discretion of the Committee. To be eligible to access the Sick Bank, employees must donate at least 1 sick day per year during the annual donation period during the month of January. If an employee chooses to donate, their donation will not impact the annual Sick Leave Buy Back process nor count as an instance under the Attendance Policy.
