Employees will become eligible for sick leave, subject to the following conditions:
- The employee has worked adequate time to have accrued sick leave
In addition to illness, sick leave may also be granted for medical, dental or optical examinations or when a member of your household requires your personal care and attention due to illness.

3. CERTIFICATION OF ILLNESS
Certification of illness by a physician (supply of certified medical certificate signed by a physician) will be required to qualify for sick leave, however, cost to attend that physician is at the employee’s expense.
