Leaves of Absence

Since service is usually not credited for any period of time you do not receive earnings, credit is not given for:

  • Leaves of absence without pay;
  • Authorized, unpaid medical leaves of absence; or
  • Unpaid leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.

Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay; Tier 2 members receive half credit for sick leave at half pay.

Workers’ Compensation

You will usually receive up to one year of service credit per incident for time spent on Workers’ Compensation leave.
