2020 May 1
by HISD Communications

Program offers up to 30 additional leave days for catastrophic illness/injury

The HISD Supplemental Sick Leave Bank (SSLB) program offers participants up to 30 additional leave days for extended absences due to a catastrophic injury or illness.

SSLB membership enrollment and Disenrollment is now online!  Access is available through OneSource ESS. 

The SSLB membership enrolled or not enrolled notices will be emailed to eligible employees during the week of May 11, 2020. Enrollment Information and plan details are also available on the SSLB webpage. Please note that current SSLB members are automatically re-enrolled in the program, as long as there is an available local leave day, available to donate as of September 1, 2020. Employees eligible for the program will be emailed information during the week of May 11th.

For purposes of clarification, if an SSLB participating employee is ill due to COVID-19 and has a doctor’s approval to recover from COVID-19 for seven up to 30 days, this will qualify for SSLB assuming all other SSLB requirements are met.  The same is true for testing positive for COVID-19 and having medical recommendation to quarantine at home and otherwise meeting all other SSLB requirements.  However, the SSLB will not extend to SSLB leave days to care for a household member that might have COVID-19.

Eligible employees may enroll or cancel membership during the pre-enrollment period through June 12, 2020. An open enrollment period will be held in August for employees to enroll or terminate membership. A final enrollment period for the school year will be held in November for enrollment only.
