SICK vs PERSONAL
|'Sick' absence||'Personal Necessity' absence|
Sick leave may be taken to receive preventative care (annual physicals or flu shots) or to diagnose, treat, or care for an existing health condition. Employees may also use sick leave to assist a family member (children, parents, spouses/domestic partners, grandparents, grandchildren, siblings) who must receive preventative care or a diagnosis, treatment, or care for an existing health condition. Finally, an employee may take paid sick time to receive medical care or other assistance to address instances of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. You should select "sick" for the reason in Frontline for these types of absences. You are to enter this absence into Frontline yourself as soon as you know that you will be missing work.
Part-time employees (under 30 hours) may not use sick time for absences related to personal necessity.
Full-time and Contracted staff may use up to five (5) sick days for personal necessity reasons. For non-exempt employees, number of hours is five times their regular daily hours. (For example, an employee who is scheduled to work 7.5 hours per day would be eligible to use 37.5 hours of sick leave for personal necessity.) Personal necessity is defined as the need to be absent from work due to situations outside of an employee’s control that cannot be handled on a non-work day. The following are some examples: attending a funeral, attending a child’s graduation, dealing with a flooded house or some other disaster; attending a child’s fieldtrip in a non-staff member capacity; appearing in court or before any administrative tribunal as a litigant, party, or witness under subpoena or any order made with jurisdiction. The use of personal necessity time is specifically NOT for vacations. Additionally, personal necessity time may not be taken to extend school breaks / holiday closures, nor used on the Professional Development days throughout the year.
'Personal Necessity' absences require 72-hour advance approval by administration utilizing the Employee Absence Request Form. If approved, the Employee Absence Request forms should be turned into your site designated person who will then enter the absence into Frontline Education.
If you are going to be out for a PD day(s), this also needs to be approved by administration using the Employee Absence Form. Your site designated person will then enter the absence into Frontline Education.
