Catastrophic Sick Leave

The catastrophic sick leave bank (CSLB) is a voluntary pool of local leave days for a full-time District employee whose documented catastrophic health condition extends beyond his or her own accumulated state and local leave.

 

A maximum of 60 CSLB leave days may be granted in a school year.

 

Catastrophic illness or injury is a condition or combination of conditions that:

  1. Is life-threatening, requires 5 or more days of hospitalization or major medical treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation; and requires the services of a licensed healthcare provider throughout the period of the catastrophic leave; or
  2. Has totally physically incapacitated the individual from work; and requires the services of a licensed healthcare provider throughout the period of the catastrophic leave.

 

To be eligible to apply for CSLB leave, an employee must participate in the CSLB, must have used all available compensatory time and all available state, local, and/or vacation leave days, and must have been absent due to a documented catastrophic health condition for at least two consecutive workdays.

Family Medical Leave Act

FMLA requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to eligible employees for the following reasons:

  • For incapacity due to pregnancy, prenatal medical care or child birth;
  • To care for the employee’s child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee’s spouse, son or daughter, or parent, who has a serious health condition; or
  • For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee’s job.

 

As a requirement for FMLA, employees must be employed with the district at least 12 months prior to taking medical leave.

Temporary Disability Leave

Any full-time employee shall be eligible for temporary disability leave due to their own serious medical condition. The maximum length of temporary disability leave shall be 180 calendar days, which runs concurrent with Family Medical Leave.

Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that provides employees with income and medical benefits if they sustain a work-related injury or illness.

 

Workers' Compensation pays for work injury medical bills and replaces a portion of your lost wages. 

  • Procedures

    All principals, assistant principals, supervisors, nurses, secretaries and administration personnel are required to immediately report any on the job injury an employee reports to them, or one of which they have knowledge to their campus or department WC reporting contact. 


    Campus/department WC contacts must file the online First Report of Injury (FROI) on all incidents and injuries and ensure the following is done within 24 hours.

     

      Do you need help with the FROI? 

      These instructions will walk you through the process and give you answers when you are not sure.

      Remember!

      A FROI must be filed on all incidents or injuries regardless of loss time, medical treatment, or if employee refuses to sign or cooperate!
