In the event the 25 days of earned and extended sick leave described above, or any proration thereof, are exhausted in an appointment year, any balance of leave accumulated after January 1, 1984, will be available for use. After that amount is completely depleted, any balance of sick leave accumulated prior to January 1, 1984, will be used. No deduction of time from sick leave is made at a time when a staff member is not expected to furnish regular service to the University. Sick leave may be used for illness of, injury to, or need to obtain medical or dental consultation for the staff member or the staff member's spouse or children. A female staff member may use sick leave as maternity leave. Exceptions to and applications of this policy beyond spouse and children, e.g., members of the household, may be granted. Members of the household are defined as dependent residents of the staff member's household. After an academic or administrative staff member has exhausted the 12 days of cumulative earned sick leave, the 13 days of non-cumulative extended sick leave in an appointment year, the unused sick leave accumulated after January 1, 1984, and the sick leave accumulated prior to January 1, 1984, and subject to the approval of the President, or Chancellor as appropriate,1 a staff member who has completed at least three full years of service may be granted non-cumulative sick leave with full pay for a period (including the annual and extended leaves and accumulations described above) not to exceed one-half of the staff member's appointment year. A staff member who, within 120 days, completes a direct transfer to the University of Illinois from another State agency or employer will receive a credit for the balance of unused and uncompensated sick leave accrued at the State agency or employer from which the employee is transferring. Such transferred sick leave credit will be treated in the same manner as sick leave accumulated by University of Illinois employees prior to January 1, 1984. The transferring staff member will accrue compensable sick leave at the beginning of employment with the University. Academic or administrative staff members who return to University employment within two years of an earlier separation from University employment, and who upon return are eligible for sick leave under this Section, shall have restored, as sick leave accumulated prior to January 1, 1984, regardless of when it was earned, any sick leave which was not compensated to such individuals or used to establish service credit in the State Universities Retirement System at the time of the prior separation from University employment. Reporting on use of sick leave will be made at the unit level and recorded centrally as required. (cd) Death, Disability, and Survivor Benefits. For employees of the University, other than students paid on an hourly basis and personnel whose principal employment is outside the University, with at least six months' service, who are not participants in the State Universities Retirement System or any other publicly supported retirement system which pays a death benefit, a death benefit of $500 is payable by the University. For employees who are participants in the State Universities Retirement System, death, disability, and survivor benefits are provided by that System.
