Sick Leave Banks

The purpose of the Sick Banks is to provide sick leave to contributors in cases of catastrophic and incapacitating personal illness after the member’s accumulated sick and personal leave has been exhausted according  to guidelines.  HCEA Sick Bank is set-up in two banks – Teachers and Education Support Professionals.  Requirements of enrollment and detailed guidelines for each bank are available from HCEA or download below.  The annual donation is recommended by the respective Sick Leave Bank Committee and approved by the HCEA Board of Directors and then announced to the Rep Council Meeting.  Sick Leave Bank is continuous unless cancelled in writing by the member.  The cancellation period is July 1 to October 31.
