Sick Leave to Vacation Conversion Policy

An employee who has a 42 day accumulation of sick leave may be allowed to trade two sick leave days to receive one day of vacation as long as his or her sick leave balance does not drop below 40 days. In no case would the number of converted vacation days allowed under this provision exceed five per calendar year (the employee is allowed to convert a maximum of 10 sick leave days from January 1–December 31). Employees must secure prior approval from Human Resources using the Sick Leave to Vacation Conversion Form to trade in sick days. Failure to secure this approval could result in docked pay.

 

Scheduling of Vacation
Sick leave converted to vacation days will be added to the employee’s regular vacation balance. As with any vacation, departmental workloads must be given priority consideration before such leave is granted. The scheduling of vacation is subject to prior supervisory approval.
