  • Sick Leave / Process

    I couldn't seem to find this question posted in the forums and I would like some input on it. I know that when you apply to various agencies and they check out your past employers, the attendance record is looked at. I currently work for a State University PD in FL as a CSO and I have been here over two years. In the last 12 months, I have used 208 sick hours (26 days)to take care of a sick family member. I always had the time to take it since our leave categories work on an overdraft type system where they draw from each other. When I took the sick leave, it showed as Family Sick Leave. I know that 26 days is a lot but do departments make exceptions given the circumstance?

    Most agencies inquire and verify how much sick time or other time is used. I would guess, that if you have a verified and legitimate excuse it would help. As long as the 208 hours aren't mainly used on your mondays and fridays you should be alright.

      it will definetly raise some eye brows, as with any employer not just law enforcement, but if its properly documented and your employer backs it up, then it shouldnt matter. but you may have to reveal some personal info about your family, to the dept., to backup what you are saying.

        Well the leave was all legitimate and documented, but the department won't back me up on it. The dept. shows preference to certain people and others here have used more leave in the same period of time for illegitimate reasons and have not gotten reprimanded. I have never recieved a written reprimand but it does reflect on the evaluations. Given that, is there a way that I can make it known to my prospective agency that it was legit prior to them checking my records.
