Temporary Approval to Use Accrued Sick Leave for Child Care Reasons Due to COVID-19
UC President Napolitano has temporarily approved expanding the reasons for which policy-covered staff employees may use accrued sick leave under PPSM-2.210: Absence from Work. Effective July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, policy-covered staff employees may use accrued sick leave if they are unable to work or telework due to a need to care for their children who are not attending school (or who cannot be at their places of care or with their child providers) because of COVID-19 precautions.
Subject to collective bargaining, a similar expansion of the use of sick leave may be made available to represented employees who have accrued sick leave.
