    There is a sick leave bank which is excellent for people who are away from work longer that expected. I never got sick or had to use it, however.

    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.
