work days, which may be utilized either (1) for establishing service credit in the State Universities Retirement System, or (2) for sick leave after all sick leave earned and accumulated on or after January 1, 1984, had first been utilized by the staff member. Unused sick leave earned by an academic or administrative staff member on or after January 1, 1984, may be accumulated up to a maximum of 240 days, and upon termination of employment, a staff member may designate the portion of the accumulation (up to one-half) to be paid pursuant to Public Act 83-976 and the remainder thereof will be utilized for establishing service credit in the State Universities Retirement System. Post-January 1, 1984, accumulations of sick leave must be utilized in full prior to the utilization of pre-January 1, 1984, accumulations. Sick leave for academic and administrative staff members for the 1983-84 appointment year is determined under Interim Guidelines adopted by the Board of Trustees on January 19, 1984. Effective with the 1984-85 appointment year, academic and administrative staff members who are participants (except for Medical Residents, Postdoctoral Research Associates, and Annuitants in SURS or the Federal Retirement System) in the State Universities Retirement System or Federal Retirement System, and who are appointed for at least 50 percent time to a position for which service is to be rendered for at least nine consecutive months, will earn sick leave of 12 work days for each appointment year, the unused portion of which shall accumulate to a maximum of 240 work days. If these 12 days are fully utilized in any appointment year, up to 13 additional work days will be available for extended sick leave in that appointment year, no part of which 13 days shall be cumulative or eligible for payment under Public Act 83-976. No additional sick leave is earned for a summer appointment. In the case of an appointment for less than a full appointment year, and in the case of a part-time appointment, the 12 days cumulative and the 13 days non-cumulative leave shall be prorated. 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 the 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.
In the case of staff members of Central Administration Offices, the President will act.
