Regular, full-time and part-time benefits-eligible employees are eligible to accrue vacation hours. Full- time employees accrue 10 hours vacation per month for the first five years of employment. After the completion of the 5th year of service, vacation will accrue at 12 hours per month. Employees with 10 or more years of service will accrue at 14 hours per month.
Regular Employees working at least one-half time but less than full time earn and accrue vacation hours in an equivalent ratio to their percentage of time employed.
An employee must be hired on or before the 15th of the month to accrue leave for that month. Leave is accrued on the last working day of the month.
Carryover of Unused Vacation Days
On December 31 of each calendar year, each employee's leave record shall be adjusted to reflect no more than 45 days (360 hours) of accrued vacation/vacation.
Regular, full-time and part-time benefits-eligible employees are eligible to accrue sick leave hours. Full-time employees accrue 8 hours of sick leave per month
Employees, who work at least 30 hours a week are allowed to use five (5) days of accrued sick leave to care for an immediate family member. Employees are not to perform University related tasks while on sick leave.
Sick Leave without Pay
Any employee unable to return to work after exhausting all accumulated sick leave and accrued vacation leave may request sick leave without pay for a period not to exceed one year. This additional sick leave without pay may be granted at the discretion of the department.
If additional sick leave is approved by the department, the employee will have the option to continue his or her group insurance benefits while on sick leave. The institution will continue to pay its share of the cost for such period, but the employee must continue to pay his or her share of premiums.
Upon return from approved, unpaid sick leave, the employee will be restored to his or her original position, or to an equivalent job with equivalent pay, benefits, and other employment terms and conditions. Georgia State University cannot guarantee that an employee will be returned to his or her original job. Should an employee be unable to return to work after being granted sick leave without pay for one year, the employee will be terminated.
