Sick Leave Pool

It is the policy of UT Rio Grande Valley to provide paid sick leave to eligible employees who have exhausted  all  other accrued paid leave and lose compensation because either they or their immediate family member(s) have suffered a catastrophic illness or injury.

Direct SL Donation

  • A current employee may contribute an unlimited number of hours to another employee provided that the contribution will not cause the donor’s balance to drop below fifty [50] hours and contributions must be in units of eight [8] hours. Terminating employees may donate their full or partial accrued sick leave balance. Please do not contribute if you may return to state employment within a year. Once hours are contributed, they cannot be restored.
