2,303: Sick Leave

Last Revised: August 2005

Sick leave is accumulated at the rate of ten hours for each full month of service. After a classified employee has accumulated 90 working days of sick leave credit, the amount of additional unused sick leave credit which he is entitled to carry forward from one year to the next is limited to one-half the sick leave accrual over 90 days. The remaining one-half shall be placed in a separate account to be used by the classified employee under certain conditions as stated in NAC 284.546. There is no waiting period, but sick leave may be used only after it is earned. A classified employee who terminates after a minimum of 10 years of service through no fault of his own is entitled to payment of accrued sick leave in excess of 30 days pursuant to NRS 284.355.
