Revisions to Human Resources Policies
Minor revisions have been made to the Attendance
Policy (Human Resources Policy 603), and Sick Leave Policy (Human
Resources Policy 612) to provide further clarification on sick
time usage. Sick time used for health care provider appointments,
which are not medically urgent, must be scheduled in advance and
approved by the supervisor. Also, the revised Special Winter Vacation
Policy (Human Resources Policy 608) clarifies that staff members
who are absent from work either the workday before or the workday
after the Special Winter Vacation or both days, will receive pay
for the Special Winter Vacation provided that the absence is charged
to pre-approved paid time off, or to sick days substantiated by
a written note from the staff member's health care provider. The
revised policies can be accessed via the Human Resources website
