Paid sick days are granted to regular employees in order to insure continuity of income when the employee is absent due to illness and/or verifiable disability, including maternity disability.
Paid sick days are granted to regular employees in order to insure continuity of income when the employee is absent due to verifiable disability, including maternity disability. Each year, you may use up to six days of your paid sick time when necessary for the care of your sick child or the child of your registered domestic partner. Three of these six days may also be used when necessary to care for a sick spouse, registered domestic partner, parent, sibling, parent-in-law, grandchild or grandparent. Waiting periods and allowances are described below.
The University administers paid sick days based on the employee's anniversary year.
Note: If the absence is due to injury on the job, see Workers’ Compensation.
New Hires: If you are a regular, full-time employee and began work on or before the 15th day of the month, you will receive credit for one paid sick day at the end of that month. Sick days thereafter are accrued at the rate of one day per completed full calendar month of service, until you have worked at the University for one full year.
After One or More Years of Employment: The number of paid sick days available to you increases with the length of employment, as shown below.
Paid sick days are not cumulative from year to year. Sick days do not accrue when you are not actively at work (see also Conditions Applicable to Sick Days below).
Completed Years Of Continuous NYU Employment: Maximum Paid Sick Time In One 12-Month Period
Less than 1 year: Earn 1 day per month up to 12 days
1 year: 20 days
2 to 4 years: 40 days
5 to 7 years: 60 days
8 to 9 years: 80 days
10 or more years: 120 days
How to calculate sick days available at the beginning of an illness after 1 year of employment, based on the employee's anniversary year:
1. Determine the maximum allowance based on the preceding chart.
2. Subtract from this maximum the number of sick days used in the 12 months prior to the onset of the current illness.
If you are a regular employee who works part-time, you are entitled to a pro-rated sick leave based on the number of hours you are scheduled to work each week. (Eligibility for sick days follows the same guidelines as for full-time employees, as described above.) Use the formula below to determine the number of paid sick hours available to a part-time employee.
Example: Assume you have 2 years of service and work 25 hours per week
