Sick days are the only paid time that can be split up. Sick time is accrued and starts after 90 days of employment.
People call out too much and don't give the office enough notice for scheduled doctor appointments.
They still expect you to somehow work even when you are sick.
There are no specific "sick days." If you are feeling ill and decide to call out, you are met with a barrage of texts and phone calls berating you for calling out and demanding that you return to work. The same is said if you need to call out due to your child's illness. This happens even if you or your child are hospitalized. If you or your child comes into the school and suddenly falls ill, you will not be allowed to go home and must work the remainder of your shift. A coworker's son came down with a high fever during the school day, and the director wanted her son to remain in the office until his mother's shift was finished rather than send the two of them home.
I think that sick days are also industry standard. You do not start to earn them until after three or six months of employment. (I can't remember.) Then you earn 1 or 1/2 day per month after that. (again, I can't remember.
