What is the rule for employees taking sick leave for the entire day when they have a medical appointment, not treatment?
Note: Theoretically, the appointment should not last the entire day and an employee that takes the whole day for an appointment may be abusing the sick time policy. Employees may use sick time for medical appointments for themselves and for immediate family members such as children, spouse, or parents. However, should a supervisor suspect that sick time abuse is occurring, he/she is authorized to request a certification from a health care provider to document the sick time used. If an employee cannot provide the requested documentation, the employee may be asked to use no work/no pay instead of sick time. Continued instances of sick time abuse may lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Please refer to the appropriate Sick Time Policy for more information.
