Northfield, New Jersey
PERSONAL ILLNESS AND INJURY/HEALTH AND HARDSHIP PROCEDURE
Sick leave is hereby defined to mean the absence from his or her post of duty of any person because of personal disability due to illness or injury, or because he or she has been excluded from school by the school physician on account of a contagious disease or of being quarantined for such a disease in his or her immediate household.
- All persons holding any office, position, or employment with the Northfield Board of Education, who are steadily employed by the board shall be allowed sick leave with full pay for ten (10) school days in any school year.
- If any such person requires in any school year less than the specified number of days of sick leave with pay allowed, all days of such sick leave shall be accumulated to be used for additional sick leave as needed in subsequent years.
- Whenever any employee, entitled to sick leave, is absent as a result of personal injury caused by an accident arising out of and in the course of his employment, his employer shall pay to such employee the full salary or wages for the period of such absence up to one calendar year, without having such absence charged to the annual sick leave or the accumulated sick leave. Any amount of salary or wages paid or payable to the employee pursuant to this section shall be reduced by the amount of any Workman’s Compensation award made for temporary disability.
- In case of sick leave claimed, the board of education may require a physician’s certificate to be filed with the secretary of the board of education in order to obtain sick leave
