The Sick Leave Bank is a negotiated benefit between MCPS and SEIU Local 500 for all supporting service employees. SEIU Local 500 prepares and processes all Sick Leave Bank grant requests on behalf of the Sick Leave Bank Committee for them to review.
The purpose of the Bank is the provide continued pay to members of the Bank for a qualifying, personal illness that is incapacitating to the point where a person cannot perform their duties during regularly scheduled duty days. All sick leave must first be exhausted and a two day waiting period must also be satisfied. The Bank is for personal illness suffered only by the contributing member of the Bank.
