Regarding leave for the care of children who have been dismissed from school and/or family leave please see the “Leave Usage” page, question and answer number “Q12/A12”. It allows for employees to use sick leave for the care of your children.
Additionally, question and answer to Q11/A11 also addresses employees who have exhausted all forms of paid leave. They may be advanced up to 80 hours of sick leave. The hours advanced shall be recouped each pay period after the 80 hours was requested until the balance is back to zero. If the employee does request to advance up to the 80 hours, this may impact their ability to use sick leave for other purposes prior to the balance accruing past zero.
