CCRIPSA Sick Leave Bank

The Professional Staff Association (PSA) bargaining unit agreement contains a provision for a Sick Leave Bank.  Each year of the contract, a PSA member can voluntarily contribute one day, 7 hours, of his/her sick leave balance toward the Bank.  If, during the year, that employee suffers a “catastrophic” illness or injury, he/she may request to be allowed access to the Bank.  A Committee composed of 2 members appointed by the PSA, 2 members appointed by the Administration, and a fifth member selected by the other 4 members will determine whether or not the request will be approved.

Eligibility for approval is based on the following conditions:

• The employee must first have exhausted all other leave accruals.
• The employee must provide medical documentation of a catastrophic illness or injury (including diagnosis, prognosis and perceived length of disability) that is not work-related.
• ONLY employees who have contributed to the Sick Leave Bank are eligible to apply for access to the bank.

A PSA member who meets the above criteria may submit a request to the Committee for approval to access the Bank.  The Committee may grant up to the number of hours from the Sick Leave Bank that are needed by the employee either to return to work OR to become eligible for coverage by the College’s Total Disability Plan, i.e., 6 months of absence.  Please remember that a contribution to the Bank does not ensure approval to access the Bank.  The contract provides for additional days to be solicited from members at a later date if the Bank needs more contributions during the year.

If you would like to contribute a day of sick leave to the Sick Leave Bank for year 2015, please go to your Online Leave Report in My CCRI for the pay period January 11, 2015 – January 24, 2015 OR January 25, 2015 – February 7, 2015 to donate.  A leave code will be established that will allow you to donate this time only during this period.  Please use the Sick Bank Donation code to donate.  You will receive an email once these pay periods are open for your donation, as the calendar roll maintenance has to be completed prior to this period opening and your donation of time.

If you have any questions, please call Payroll at 825-2180.
