Sick days were taken as needed and they were taken as a precaution to keep the rest of the staff well.
My job is very very flexible. If I say I can't make it in for the week or something it isn't even a problem.
Plenty of sick leave for me, though I'm young and healthy. They allow you to use sick days for family members which worked out really well when kids are sick and errands still need run.
Generous amount of sick days offered to admin/full-time employees.
I was able to take however many sick days I needed as a Research Assistant because I could perform most of the research from home, and I only had to attend group meetings some of the time; we were usually informed of what occurred during team meetings through email.
You can accrue sick days.
Twelve sick days accrued per year. Accrue one sick day per month. They carry over from year-to-year, so you can potentially accrue an unlimited amount of sick days.
It is easy to get your time covered
No paid sick days, but the professors I assisted were remarkably understanding on the days I had to come in late (or not at all) due to illness.
Sick days were adequate--no more.
