The Professional Staff Association Sick Leave Bank is changing its open enrollment period.
In 2018, there are two enrollment periods — March and October.
And starting in 2019, there will only be one enrollment period in October.
“This move makes sense since it will align the Sick Leave Bank open enrollment with the University’s open enrollment for health-care benefits,” Deb Sobczak, chair of the Sick Leave Bank Committee, said.
“Established in 1998, The University of Toledo Professional Staff Association’s Sick Leave Bank has proven to be a very worthwhile effort,” she said. “This Sick Leave Bank provides help for all members who have exhausted their own vacation and sick hours due to a personal catastrophic illness or injury.”
Beginning in 2010, the Sick Leave Bank was expanded to include professional staff on Health Science Campus, and in 2017, the University agreed to allow this resource to continue.
Full-time PSA employees may make a one-time donation of 16 hours; part-time PSA employees may donate eight hours.
Those who wish to join the Sick Leave Bank and help their co-workers can find policy information, current member list and the donation form at utoledo.edu/org/psa/sickleavebanknew.html.
