• Sick Leave Bank

    The purpose of the Sick Leave Bank is to provide additional sick leave days to members of the Bank who in the event of a catastrophic illness or injury have exhausted all paid leave days. The request for additional days may only be made when a member has exhausted all accumulated state, local and vacation leave days.
