Full-time state employees accrue sick leave at a rate of 3.70 hours biweekly. Temporary employees do not accrue sick leave. Part-time employees accrue a proportional amount of sick leave.
Sick leave may be taken for illness or injury that renders the employee unable to perform the duties of the employee’s position; disability of the employee that is caused by pregnancy, childbirth, miscarriage, or abortion; examination or treatment of the employee by a licensed healthcare practitioner; and illness, injury, disability caused by pregnancy or childbirth, or examination or treatment by a licensed healthcare practitioner of an employee’s spouse, dependent child, or parent. Sick leave may not be granted in excess of 40 hours per calendar year (AZ Admin. Code Sec. R2-5A-B603).
