That Section 33-1216, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 7 amended to read as follows: 8 33-1216. SICK AND OTHER LEAVE. (a) At the beginning of each new employ- 9 ment year and thereafter as necessary during the employment year, each certif- 10 icated and noncertificated employee of any school district, including charter 11 districts, shall be entitled to sick leave with full pay of one (1) day for 12 each month of service, or major portion thereof as projected for the employ- 13 ment year, subject to the limitations provided by this chapter. The local 14 board of trustees shall not provide compensation for unused sick leave. This 15 shall not prohibit the local board of trustees from establishing a policy pro- 16 viding retirement severance pay. 17 (b) The board of trustees may require proof of illness adequate to pro- 18 tect the district against malingering and false claims of illness. Any accumu- 19 lated sick leave earned prior to July 1, 1976, shall be used before the use of 20 any accumulated sick leave earned subsequent to July 1, 1976. 21 Each local board of trustees may establish a policy governing leave for 22 certificated and noncertificated employees in the case of illness or death of 23 members of the families of such employees, for professional conferences and 24 workshops, and for such other purposes as the board may determine. 25 (c) Each local board of trustees may establish a policy governing leave 26 for certificated and noncertificated employees in the case of absence during a 27 period for which the employee is paid by workmen'sworker's compensation. In 28 addition the board may supplement the workmen'sworker's compensation payment 29 by an amount not to exceed an amount which when combined with the workmen's30 worker's compensation payment would be equal to the amount the employee would 31 have been paid if he had not been injured. Supplementation may come from 32 accrued vacation leave, compensatory time or sick leave time as may be pro- 33 vided in the policy of the district. Time for which a person is paid workmen's34 worker's compensation shall not be allowed as straight sick leave which would 35 result in duplicate compensation. 36 (d) The board of trustees of any school district, including any specially 37 chartered district, may also grant a leave of absence to any certificated 38 employee of such district for service to a professional educational organiza- 39 tion of which such certificated employee is a member and has been elected to 40 hold the office of president therein, such leave to be for a period not 41 exceeding one (1) year. During the period of any such leave of absence the 42 said certificated employee shall receive the same compensation and receive or 43 accrue such other rights and benefits that he would have been entitled to or 2 1 have received or accrued had he been present and working for the school dis- 2 trict, and he shall remain an active member of the public employee retirement 3 system of Idaho; provided that such professional educational organization 4 shall first pay to the said school district an amount equal to any and all 5 compensation, contributions to the public employee retirement system of Idaho 6 and any other amounts paid to or accrued in the name of said employee during 7 such period.
Statement of Purpose RS 13634 This amendment to Section 33-1216, Idaho Code, allows education employees to utilize a portion of accrued sick leave to supplement workers compensation to maintain his or her regular salary while recovering from a disability incurred on the job covered by workers compensation. This provision would allow education employees to use accrued sick leave to supplement workers' compensation pay in order to bring the employee to his or her regular salary level. This provision would allow education employees to be treated the same as state employees. Fiscal Impact No fiscal impact to the general fund.
