How do I use my time?
Foreseeable Absences (i.e. prescheduled medical appointment) should be reported in advance. All other absences should be reported as soon as feasible. Foreseeable absences will not be permitted on days when early dismissals are scheduled or on the last day before any long weekend or school vacation.
· Workers may use accrued sick day swhen they are scheduled to work (i.e have accepted a per diem assignment). An assignment should not be accepted just to receive a paid sick day.
· Workers must contact timekeepers to report a sick day at least one hour before the scheduled beginning of the work day. Timekeepers will enter reported sick days into Kronos.
· All extended absences (3 days or more) will require a doctor’s note in order to qualify for paid sick leave.
