City Council restates vacation accumulation and sick leave policies

 

City Council 05-14-18

 

The City Council granted final approval on an ordinance restating the policy regarding vacation accumulation rights and sick leave for City employees at its meeting May 14.

Vacation may be carried over and accumulated in subsequent calendar years. Beginning on June 1, 2018, employees with more than 240 hours accrued at the time of his/her retirement or termination, will only be paid up to 240 hours of accrued vacation time. Employees hired before June 1, 2018 will retain the 480 hour accrual limits in place at that time and will be considered “grandfathered” for those benefits.

Sick leave shall be accrued by each full-time employee, except that no employee shall earn sick leave benefits while serving under an emergency or temporary assignment or while still in their introductory period.

Time taken off before an employee’s introductory period is complete will be without pay. If an employee must be absent from work because of a personal illness, they will be eligible to receive their regular straight time pay for up to 12 days per calendar year. Up to two days of the total days available for sick leave may be used as personal days.

After successful completion of an introductory period, employees will earn 3.69 hours of sick leave per pay period or the equivalent of 12 days per year.

Sick leave may be accumulated from year to year. As of June 1, 2018, when an employee actually retires, the employee will be paid for a maximum of 240 hours only of accrued sick leave. Sick leave will be paid at the rate of pay earned upon retirement, not to exceed 240 hours. Only retiring employees will be eligible to receive accrued sick leave pay. Employees hired before June 1, 2018 will retain the 480 hour accrual limits.
