[The following was approved on October 24, 1995, in accordance with provisions set forth in SIU Board of Trustees 2 Policies C.]

Each time an employee finds it necessary to be absent during a scheduled work period, a report explaining the absence should be filed with the department.  Except for emergencies, the use of vacation should be submitted for approval in advance.  When an absence is due to illness or injury, a properly completed absence form should be presented to the department on the day the employee returns to work.  If benefit time is not or cannot be used to compensate an employee, the employee will not be paid for the absence. Documentation pertaining to employee absences should be retained by the department for a minimum of three years.
