Amending Section A8.18, Sick Leave, of the Kansas City Administrative Code by deleting subsection (a)(3) thereof and adopting a new subsection (a)(3) pertaining to accrual of sick leave.

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section A. That Section A8.18, Sick Leave, of the Kansas City Administrative Code is hereby deleted and a new Section A8.18, Sick Leave, is hereby adopted to read as follows:

 

Section A8.18. Sick Leave.

 

(a) Employees allocated to classes within the managerial, professional, supervisory and/or confidential group.

 

(1) Amount. Each regular employee in the classified and

unclassified service shall earn eight (8) hours of sick leave with pay credit monthly. A regular employee appointed on or prior to the fifteenth day of the month shall receive sick leave credit beginning on the first day of the month; a regular employee appointed subsequent to the fifteenth day of the month shall receive sick leave credit beginning on the first day of the succeeding month. Employees who are compensated for at least forty-one (41) hours during a pay period will be credited the proportionate amount for the pay period.

 

(2) When taken. Sick leave with pay must be earned

before it can be granted for absence from duty because of actual personal illness, noncompensable bodily injury or disease, exposure to contagious disease, or to keep a doctor's or dentist's appointment. An employee may utilize up to sixteen (16) hours of his/her earned sick leave to take his/her spouse and/or children to a doctor or hospital for medical treatment. Reporting and documenting requirements of this section shall be followed with respect to such leave.

 

When a field employee finds it necessary to be absent for

any of the reasons specified herein, he shall cause the facts to be reported to his department head or division head thirty (30) minutes prior to the regular time for reporting to work. All other employees shall notify their department head or division head within one (1) hour after their starting time on the first working day of absence. Sick leave shall not be granted unless such report has been made.

 

An employee must keep his department head informed of his

condition if the absence is of more than three (3) days' duration. An employee may be required to submit a medical certificate or other documentation for any absence.

 

Failure to fulfill these requirements may result in a

denial of sick leave.

 

No refund of vacation time shall be allowed for illness

incurred while on vacation leave.

 

(3) Accrual. Sick leave may be accrued with pay credit

up to a limit of two thousand five hundred seventy-five (2,575) hours. Employees who currently have more than two thousand five hundred seventy-five (2,575) hours accrued sick leave may continue to accrue sick leave unless their sick leave utilization causes them to fall below two thousand five hundred seventy-five (2,575) hours, in which case the two thousand five hundred seventy-five (2,575) hour cap will then apply.

 

(4) Conversion. The conversion of unused sick leave

shall be credited as follows: Employees may upon separation from the service, providing such employees have at least six (6) months of continuous service, convert accrued sick leave credit at the ratio of four (4) hours of sick leave credit to one (1) hour of vacation leave credit. Employees with at least twenty-five (25) years of creditable service, or who are eligible and elect to retire upon obtaining the total of age and years of creditable service equal to or exceeding eighty (80), or who retire with a normal retirement, or early retirement at age sixty (60) or thereafter, or with line-of- duty disability pension, or who die while active employees, shall convert accrued sick leave credit at the ratio of two (2) hours of sick leave credit to one (1) hour of vacation leave credit.

 

(b) Employees allocated to classes covered under the provisions of the work agreement between the City and Local 500. Employees allocated to classes covered under the provisions of the work agreement between the City and Local 500 - american Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees shall receive sick leave under the provisions of the work agreement in effect.

 

(c) Employees allocated to classes covered under the provisions of the work agreement between the City and Local 42. Employees allocated to classes covered under the provisions of the work agreement between the City and Local 42 - International Association of Fire Fighters shall receive sick leave under the provisions of the work agreement in effect.

 

(d) Recording of sick leave. All absences on sick leave must be recorded in units of not less than one-half hour on the payroll time sheet or daily payroll record card by use of the symbol "SL" to indicate absence of a full day or shift, or "SL" followed by a figure to indicate the number of hours of absence of account of sickness. Each department shall maintain a sick leave record for each employee.
