What is the online instructors sick leave policy?
Online Instructor Sick Leave Information
- As instructors are paid on contract, use of sick leave will not result in additional pay above and beyond the contracted amount.
- On January 1 of each year (or effective on the first day of employment, whichever is later), employees will receive 48 hours (6 days) of sick leave. There is no waiting period before leave may be used
- Any unused leave will expire on December 31 of each year with a new balance of 48 hours being provided on January 1 annually
- Sick leave hours are not paid out upon termination from employment.
Instructors may determine that they are able to adequately fulfill the terms of their contract even when personal or family illnesses occur. Therefore, they are not required to report sick leave. However, unusual periods of absence from a course (due to illness or other circumstances) should be coordinated with the Teaching Group Leader (TGL). Instructions for reporting sick leave are included in the links below:
