Sick leave--Accrual and accumulation--Medical certificate--Vacation leave used for
sickness--Personal emergency leave.
Each permanent employee shall earn up to one hundred twelve
hours sick leave per full year of employment. Sick leave shall be accrued on an hourly, biweekly,
semimonthly, or monthly basis as determined by the human resources commissioner and shall
accumulate without limit as to the number of hours of such accumulation. The use of sick leave shall
be supported by a medical certificate upon the request of the human resources commissioner. An
employee is not entitled to more than the employee's accrued sick leave without first using all of the
employee's accumulated vacation leave.
An employee may use up to forty hours of the employee's accrued sick leave annually for
personal emergency reasons. Leave for personal emergencies may not be accumulated from year to
year. The commission, pursuant to chapter 1-26, shall promulgate rules to implement this provision.
