In accordance with state and local law, New York Tech provides paid sick leave to all regular, full-time and part-time employees. Full-time employees accrue sick time starting with the first month of regular full-time employment at the rate of one day per month. Part-time employees accrue on an hourly basis in accordance with state and local law. For additional information regarding contact hrbenefits@nyit.edu.

The efficient operation of the college is predicated upon employees maintaining satisfactory attendance records, and the records of employees with frequent absences of short duration are reviewed carefully. Disciplinary action up to and including termination may be instituted for excessive absenteeism even though the employee has paid sick leave remaining.

If you are absent due to illness for more than seven consecutive calendar days, you are required to contact the benefits unit of the Office of Human Resources, and they will coordinate the short- term disability claim application process for you. The benefits personnel have the right to ask you to provide a doctor's note confirming the medical necessity of your absence if your absences become frequent.
