Paid Time Off
Each union contract indicates how sick leave can be used. Full-time, unlimited employees in AFSCME, MAPE, MMA, Commissioner's Plan, Managerial Plan and MGEC contracts earn four hours of sick leave each full 80 hours pay period.
Sick leave is pro-rated for part-time employees based on the provisions of your union contract. Intermittent appointments begin accruing sick leave on a pro-rated basis after completion of 67 days of employment.
Vacation/Personal Leave is based on the number of years of your State service. For additional information regarding vacation/personal leave, refer to your contract or plan for details.
Employees in AFSCME, MAPE, MMA, Commissioner's Plan, Managerial Plan, and MGEC may be eligible for paid holidays. For additional information regarding holiday pay, refer to your contract or plan for details.
