Sick Time Policy

The College has announced a new Sick Leave Policy, effective January 1, 2021. This change was made to coincide with the effective date of  paid leave benefits now available for all employees under the Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (MA PFML), as well as the College’s new Supplemental Medical Leave plan available to benefits-eligible employees.  For information about MA PFML and Supplemental Medical Leave, please review the MA PFML Pamphlet (PDF) issued by the College in December 2020.

The new policy provides all staff members with a guaranteed number of sick leave days each January 1st, meant to cover eligible absences such as occasional illness, doctor’s appointments, and the MA PFML elimination period.

Effective January 1, 2021, Sick Leave balances will be as follows:

  • Full-time staff members will start the year with the greater of their existing balance or 7 days.
  • Part-time staff members will start the year with the greater of their existing balance or 40 hours.

Regardless of how much Sick Leave an employee uses throughout the year, the employee will begin each future January 1 with the same starting Sick Leave balances set forth above.

All other aspects of the College's existing sick time policy, including the reasons for which sick time may be used, remain the same and will be interpreted and applied consistent with applicable law.
