The Sick Leave Pool was established by State law to alleviate hardship for employees who have used all of their paid leave (sick, vacation, holiday, etc.) as a result of a catastrophic illness or injury (their own or within their immediate family). An employee may apply for leave from the Sick Leave Pool by completing a Request for Sick leave Pool Hours form and submitting it to the HR Benefits office. The employee should submit the form to HR Benefits prior to the time that additional sick leave is needed to allow for processing and review.
Additional information about the Sick Leave Pool can be found in the Employee Handbook.
