Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay; Tier 2, 3, 5 and 6 members receive half 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.
You will usually receive up to one year of service credit for each accident while on Workers’ Compensation leave.
