The Sick Leave Bank is an accumulation of paid days available to members who have exhausted their sick leave entitlement with the Police Service.

Members donate an annual leave day when the Executive declare a ‘sick leave bank’ year. This is only done when the amount of paid days reaches a low level and requires replenishing.

A total of 180 paid days is available to members in any 36 month continuous period commencing on the date of the first Sick Leave Bank day granted by the Committee or Executive. The member shall be required to take 38 hours leave after having been granted 40 Sick Leave Bank days. However, members must clearly have an intention to return to work. This benefit ensures that member’s continue to receive salary should they suffer non-work related injury or illness.

This advice should be read in conjunction with the Sick Leave Bank Rules.
