Laid-off staff will not be paid sick leave balance

Question

If a person is laid off, will they be paid out on their sick leave?

Response

Staff employees who receive a layoff notice will not be paid out their sick leave balance. If a laid-off employee retains re-employment with the university within three years, their sick leave balance will be reinstated. For more information, please refer to Board of Regents Policy and Regulation at http://alaska.edu/bor/policy/04-07.pdf.

Faculty employees should refer to their respective collective bargaining agreements.

Please note that term employees who contracts are not renewed are not entitled to the layoff benefits. If you have questions or concerns about your specific situation, please call Human Resources at 474-7700.
