Covid Policy Update
Each full-time employee is afforded four (4) paid sick days to use on a calendar year basis. To be paid for a sick day(s), the employee must provide an authorized signed excuse from their doctor excusing the employee for the dates off from work. Otherwise, the employee will be charged PTO time. If no PTO time is available, the days out of the office will be unpaid.
To address COVID-related illnesses, the company has authorized one (1) additional day or five (5) total days on a calendar year basis to use for COVID-19 related sickness. Five days were chosen to coincide with the current CDC guideline for a recommended quarantine time.
In addition to a signed excuse from your doctor, an example of a positive home test COVID test must be provided as well, unless the signed excuse from your physician states that you have tested positive for COVID-19.
NOTE – Paid Sick Days can only be used for an employee illness, not family members or other members that you may reside with or care for that are sick, COVID or otherwise.
You may use PTO time or take the day unpaid to care for a sick person that you are responsible for.
Finally, paid sick days do not carryover from year to year. You will reset at 4, or 5 total if COVID related.
