Clarification About Supplemental Sick Leave for Executive Branch Employees

If you are an Executive Branch member you have the right to receive Supplemental Sick Leave (which you may see referred to as SSL).

Supplemental sick leave is additional sick leave donated by state employees to other state employees in the Executive Branch through an application to the Labor Management Committee.

The Labor Management Committee (LMC) reviews each case and makes the determination of granting or not granting the request. The LMC is composed of representatives from the State and from SEA/SEIU 1984.  Supplemental Sick Leave is not decided at the local level.

Supplemental sick leave is granted for unexpected serious or life-threatening illnesses, injuries, impairments, or mental or physical conditions that have caused, or are likely to cause, the employee to take leave without pay provided appropriate medical information is provided. Supplemental sick leave is not be granted for common, minor or chronic illnesses, injuries, impairments or physical or mental conditions.

This is a great benefit and can be very consoling to employees and their families when life events happen and they have depleted their paid leave.
