For ERS Tier 1 Members
(Sections 70-a, 71-a and 75)
Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay. Since service is usually not credited for any period of time you do not receive a salary, credit is not given for:
- Leaves of absence without pay;
- Authorized, unpaid medical leaves of absence; or
- Unpaid leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.
Tier 1 members will usually receive up to one year of service credit per accident for time spent on Workers’ Compensation leave.
