Sick leave is defined as the period of time an employee is absent from work with full pay as a result of illness or injury.
When absent from work for sick leave please complete a sick leave form or email the information to the Human Resources & Compensation Officer.
The University may require medical evidence, but not normally for periods of less than five consecutive days.
Frequent periods of sick leave may be reviewed to determine if the employee is medically fit to carry out their duties on a full-time basis.
For total disability, please refer to the Long Term Disability section.
