Employees who have earned over 60 days of accumulated sick leave may cash out those days earned but unused during the 2016 calendar year (January 1, 2016 - December 31, 2016). You may only cash out the number of sick leave days you have accumulated and not used during the previous calendar year if in excess of 60; and for each four days you cash out, you will be paid for one.
State law allows for sick leave cash out to be available annually during the month of January, but only for the days accumulated during the preceding year. Forms will need to be received in Payroll by January 31, 2017. The correct form is attached
for your convenience. Please refer to the second page for a list of general questions and answers regarding the annual sick leave cash out program.
