Inform the college office of any absences, including sick leave, attendance at conferences, and absences for personal reasons. Benefit-eligible faculty earn 9.34 hours of sick leave each month, which accumulates without limit. In case of illness requiring special arrangements for covering or cancellation of classes, please notify the college secretary as soon as possible in order that appropriate arrangements can be made. A University “Request for Leave” form can be obtained from the BHSU HR web page and must be completed as soon as the faculty member returns to work. In addition, the appropriate leave must be recorded on the employee leave report available through SNAP.
