Sick Leave Transfer Plan – Procedure 208.033

Secretary Ken Tucker:

Last year the Department replaced the sick leave transfer plan with a sick leave pool as a result of instances of misuse of the sick leave transfer plan.  Since that time I have heard from many of you and personally observed a number of situations where members had a legitimate need for sick leave due to catastrophic illness or injury but were not eligible to participate in the sick leave pool.  This created a hardship for many of these members and their families during what was already a very difficult and stressful time in their lives.   

After further review, I am pleased to inform you that we have reestablished the Sick Leave Transfer Plan.  The new procedure (208.033) has been posted and will go into effect immediately.  This revised plan includes a number of controls and checks and balances to prevent the abuses which caused the original plan to be rescinded and requires approval via chain of command to the Executive Leadership Team (ELT).  The new plan will provide members an alternative to the Sick Leave Pool which will continue to operate.  Please contact the Office of Human Resources if you have any questions about either of these the procedures.  Thank you for all you do on a daily basis.
