13 days sick leave that can be carried over
Trainees (IRTAs and VFs) do not accrue annual or sick leave. However, they are excused for Federal holidays, illness, personal emergencies, and vacations when their training periods are longer than 90 days.
13 days per year but can carry over and there is donation system to share unused sick leave.
I was on a contract position but some of my co-workers needed to be off certain days because of sickness and NIH was accommodating.
not many sick days for postdocs
Sick days is standard. You earn 4 hours per 2 weeks.
13 sick days per year. Sick days accrue if they are not used.
NIH is generous with sick leave and gives leeway for staff to help with sick relatives. I give them full credit for this one.
I fortunately did not get sick that year but I would have gotten all of the sick days that I would have needed.
More generous than paid leave and never expires.
