They don't question you if you ever tell them you are sick. People in the office were out pretty often.
Sick days are separate from vacation. Thank goodness!!
It is the same accrual rate as PTO.
I was a research assistant with no benefits.
Can call in sick without fear of losing position
its ok . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Sick days weren't a problem at the University of Minnesota Parking and Transportation Services. As long as you called in sick at least two hour before your shift started you were fine. There was no penalty for calling in sick if you gave ample notice.
Professional and administrative staff do not have sick days per se, but are able to take up to 3 days with no reduction in pay. After that you are forced to sign up for FMLA and must use vacation until gone, then it becomes unpaid. Non-professional staff have good sick day allotment and can accumulate unused time.
As a student worker, sick days amounted to no more than letting the superiors know that you wouldn't be able to make it to work ahead of time.
