Truist has two sick pay plans. Eligibility for a sick pay plan is based off a teammate’s number of weekly scheduled hours in Workday, and teammate type.
At the beginning of each calendar year, full-time teammates are eligible for up to 80 hours of sick pay that may be used at any time during the calendar year for personal sickness or sickness in the family.
Any teammate with scheduled weekly hours in Workday of at least 20 hours per week but less than 40 hours per week is eligible for a pro rata sick pay benefit based on their weekly scheduled hours in Workday.
If a teammate exhausts all of their available sick pay hours and must be away from work due to personal illness, the teammate’s absence may be paid by using vacation. After the teammate has exhausted all available paid time off, the teammate may take the time unpaid.
Teammates can accrue sick pay based on hours worked.
Teammates will accrue one hour for every 30 hours entered as worked and approved in Workday. Teammates can accrue up to 80 hours of sick pay in a year and use up to 80 hours of sick pay hours in a year. Sick pay hours must be accrued before a teammate can use them. Up to 80 hours of accrued sick pay may roll forward to the next calendar year.
If a teammate exhausts all of available sick pay hours and must be away from work due to personal illness, the time is unpaid.
Sick pay may be used for sickness or injury to the teammate which renders the teammate unable to perform the functions of the position or to care for a sick child, parent, or spouse/domestic partner.
This time also may be used for any doctor appointments, dental appointments, eye care appointments, etc., for the teammate or the teammate’s child, parent, or spouse/domestic partner. This time is also available for absences related to domestic violence or sexual assault.
Managers should consult with leave and absence administration regarding requests for doctor notes. Teammates should fax all doctor notes directly to the medical records database using a medical records fax cover sheet.
Some jurisdictions have separate rules that relate to authorized sick pay absences.
