Sabbatical, Personal, Maternity, and Sick Leave Policies. Collective Bargaining Perspectives, Volume 2, Number 10.
Goeres, Ernest R.
While hiring and advancement considerations are of paramount importance to the faculty member as well as to the institution where collective bargaining agreements are negotiated each year, other employment conditions are accorded almost as much consideration. Allowances for leave follow closely on the heels of placement and promotion conditions in importance to the faculty member. Specifics on sabbatical leaves vary, but they may disallow earning money or graduate study for a terminal degree. However, a few institutions are liberal about the use of this time for faculty development activities. Most agreements now negotiated allow faculty to take personal leave for specified purposes without a reduction in pay. Most agreements also allow maternity leave either for having children or for adopting them, although the amount of leave varies. Sick leave is accumulated in a variety of ways with a wide range of allowable accumulation maximums. (MSE)
