[Donated Sick Leave Bank] Resolution this week

September 25, 2017 / Phil Lesch

The changes to the Donated Sick Leave Bank program (DSLB) are as follows:

  • goes from an opt out to an opt in program. All bargaining unit members will be automatically enrolled in the DSLB on October 1 each year unless they opt out by October 31 of each year. Sick leave is paid for by the donating member's department at the time of donation.
  • the initial donation is seven (7) hours. All donations will be acknowledged
  • If the bank needs replenishment, an assessment can be imposed on participants automatically up to six (6) additional hours in two (2) hour increments. 
  • after a participant has donated thirteen (13) hours, if the bank needs replenishment there will be a special call for an additional seven (7) hours, which is voluntary. 
  • the eligibility for donated sick leave bank usage remains the same.
  • Human Resources is required to provide to the DSLB committee the information the committee needs to administer the DSLB.
  • All members who were negatively impacted by the DSLB deficits since June 2017 will be made whole.
