Increase in the maximum sick leave days that may be accumulated by employees of the State as the employer designated Managerial or Confidential within the meaning of CSL Article 14 [the Taylor Law] proposed

The Department of Civil Service has proposed an amendment to §28 of the Attendance Rules for Employees in New York State Departments and Institutions to read as follows:

"28-1.3(b) Increase Sick Leave Accruals (b) Employees shall earn sick leave credits at the rate of one-half day per biweekly pay period and may accumulate such credits up to a total of 200 225 days."

No change has been proposed with respect to the use of up to 200 days of such credits to pay for health insurance in retirement in accordance with §167(4) of the Civil Service Law nor that an employee shall not earn sick leave credit for any biweekly pay period unless such employee is in full pay status for at least seven workdays during such biweekly pay period.

A part-time employee who is required to work a fixed number of hours on a fixed schedule five days per week, or who is required to work at least half-time each biweekly pay period for a fixed number of hours on a fixed schedule, shall also earn sick leave credit as provided herein, but total pay when absent on such leave shall be the amount which would have been due had such employee worked regularly at his/her usual hours for such period.
