3. Sick Leave

"salaried employees who are absent because of illness/injury while they are active members of the Library work force are eligible for paid sick days. sick days are provided to protect the employee from loss of salary when sick or disabled and therefore must only be used for personal illness. (you must be in payroll status at least 11 work days or 15 calendar days in any month in order to earn sick leave). an instance of a sick day is an absence of at least a half-day. employees are responsible for providing documentation for all sick days regardless of the length or nature of illness. documentation may be waived for absences of less than 4 consecutive work days.

"employees may carry over all unused sick days from one year to the next. there is no limit to the number of sick days an employee may accrue. upon separation from employment, sick balances are not paid to employees. employees with 10 years of more active service may convert up to half of their sick leave balance to terminal leave which is paid up to 120 days at separation of employment."

well, will you look at that? look who found their employee manual. as i have already proven my extreme incompetence, maybe you could look that paragraph over for me and tell me where it says that you can't have more than 3 undocumented sick days within a six month period. maybe you could also show me where it says that an employee on probation could be terminated for using too many earned sick days within their probation period. and lastly maybe you could show me why anyone would ever need to see my doctor's notes in the first place, since i have NEVER been out sick for four consecutive work days. i think i've only been out two consecutive work days at most. i think i will have to bring this to the attention of mr. higher up man when and if he ever schedules our follow-up meeting.
