All UEI employees accrue sick leave. Employees may view their sick leave balance via employee online.
Supervisors who have access to the UEI timekeeping system can view the sick leave balances of their student employees. Instructions can be found here.
Sick leave can be used if an employee is scheduled to work but is unable to due to their own illness or that of an immediate family member. If they have exhausted their available sick leave, or reached the annual maximum, and need to remain off work for these reasons, they may be eligible for State Disability Insurance (SDI) or Paid Family Leave (PFL). Claims are filed through the California Employment Development Department (EDD), and eligibility is determined by the EDD, not UEI.
Regular, benefited employees who will be out on an extended leave or who exhaust sick leave should contact the UEI Human Resources Department as they may be eligible for additional benefits such as catastrophic leave or long term disability insurance.
