Leave of Absence

ABC Companies provides all full and part-time benefit-eligible employees with sick leave pay. Sick leave is a form of insurance. Its intent is to give financial aid to eligible employees who are unable to work due to personal illness, injuries, sickness or death in the employee’s immediate family. As a general guide, it is reasonable to approve time off with pay under this policy for:

  • Illness or injury to you or an immediate family member
  • An event that qualifies under the firm’s short term disability policy (refer to handbook policy on short term disability for details)
  • Paternity (refer to handbook policy on Sick Leave for details)
  • Up to 3 days for adoption or placement for adoption
  • Medical or dental appointments for you or an immediate family member
  • Death of any member of your immediate family (refer to handbook policy on Bereavement Leave for details)
  • Snow day (with manager’s approval)

An additional 40 hours of paid leave will be granted to any employee who seeks to undergo a medical procedure to donate bone marrow. Please visit the company handbook for more detail on this policy.
