|Pr-770.1.1||Sick time is intended for the employee’s own illness and may be used for the purpose of visiting doctors, dentists or other recognized practitioners. Sick time may also be used for the purpose of tending to an illness of a spouse, domestic partner, child, parent or sibling. Additionally, sick time may be used for any relative and/or dependent living in an employee’s home. Employees are required to advise their supervisor as early as possible when they will be absent from work due to illness or doctor’s appointment. Employees must obtain supervisory approval on the Employee Absence Record in order to receive sick time pay.|
