Special Sick Leave
Cycads in the Fountain Quad
While there is usually no requirement to monitor sick leave days taken by academics, as a general principle we grant 36 days sick leave per 3 year cycle, in terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act. However, we recognise that at times, this leave is insufficient to give you the time your medical practitioner has recommended for your recuperation. Special Sick Leave may then be applied for.
