CLRC Meeting No. 29-20, item 8
(8) Advancing Vacation Time for Paid Sick Time
Workers who received at least two weeks of pay for Vacation/Paid Time Off in 2020 may, but are not required to, advance in payroll year 2020 the amount that they received, up toa two-week maximum, to be used as paid sick time. For example, if the worker in February 2020 was paid out at least two weeks of vacation/paid time off time, then that worker can advance or borrow during 2020 up to two weeks of time for paid sick time, and that amount will be taken out of the Vacation Paid Time Off check they otherwise would have received in February 2021. Further, if the worker in February 2020 was paid out only one week of vacation/paid time off time, then that worker can advance or borrow during 2020 up to one week of time for paid sick time. If a worker advances vacation/paid time off for sick leave this year, this will not serve as an offset against a paid sick leave benefit under this Proposal.
