As a general rule, when is time off considered a leave of absence and not just sick time?
- Certificated Employees
- If you are absent more than 3 consecutive days, that is considered a leave of absence * and a note from your health care provider will be needed and requested.
- Classified Employees
- If you are absent more than 5 consecutive days, that is considered a leave of absence * and a note from your health care provider will be needed and requested.
* Under all collective bargaining agreements (CBA) and Board Policy 4300 for administrators, you may use Personal Necessity (aka PN) up to 10 days annually for contract/policy defined reasons ONLY. This time must be reported into Frontline/Aesop and is drawn out of your sick leave accruals. Note: If you do not have any sick leave accruals remaining, you will not be able to take PN.
- SEIU and SLEA members have a Personal Necessity forms (located in their CBA's) that should be completed and returned to your supervisor for approval and then forwarded to OPEN for additional processing
If you will be out of work for more than 3 days (certificated employees) or 5 days (classified employees) please reach out to OPEN and they will coordinate your leave with you.
