Connecticut Laws | Title 5 State Employees
CHAPTER 67* STATE PERSONNEL ACT
Sec. 5-246. State police workweek. Work for highway contractors.

(c) (1) Any state policeman who has prior to May 30, 1973, accumulated service time for which he has not been compensated shall have the option to receive for such time either equivalent time off with pay or monetary compensation at his current rate of pay or any combination of both options subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Public Safety. Any such option as provided by this subdivision shall be exercised before December 31, 1974. (841)

(2) Any state police officer of the rank of lieutenant or above who has, prior to June 8, 1984, earned equivalent time off with pay shall use such time within five years of said date. Failure of any such officer to do so shall result in loss of such time. (842)

Sec. 5-247. Sick leave. Credit on reemployment. Collection of benefits while otherwise employed on full-time basis prohibited. (843)(Text)

(a) Each appointing authority shall grant, on account of illness or injury, to each full-time employee in a permanent position in the state service who has furnished satisfactory proof of such illness or injury, such sick leave with pay as has accrued to his credit at the rate of one and one-quarter working days for each completed calendar month of continuous full-time service which may be computed on an hourly basis. Hourly computation of sick leave shall not diminish benefit entitlement. On or before October 1, 1980, the Commissioner of Administrative Services shall adopt regulations, in accordance with chapter 54, concerning the accrual, prorating and granting of sick leave with pay to other employees in the state service and extending sick leave with pay or with part pay for longer periods to full-time permanent employees disabled through illness or injury. Each such employee who retires under the provisions of chapter 66 shall be compensated, effective as of the date of his retirement, at the rate of one-fourth of such employee's salary for sick leave accrued to his credit as of his last day on the active payroll up to a maximum payment equivalent to sixty days' pay. Such payment for accumulated sick leave shall not be included in computing retirement income and shall be charged by the State Comptroller to the department, agency or institution in which the employee worked. (844)

(b) Any state employee who resigns from state service in good standing and who is reemployed within one year from the date of his resignation shall be credited with the amount of sick leave accrued to his credit on the effective date of his resignation. (845)

(c) Sick leave accruals earned by employees in the unclassified service, in accordance with administrative practice or internal departmental regulations similar to those governing the classified service, prior to June 30, 1967, and which can be verified by written attendance records and which have not been used, remain to the credit of such employees for use for the purpose for which they were granted or for payment on retirement, as provided in subsection (a) of this section, as the case may be. (846)

(d) Any state employee who is collecting sick leave benefits under the provisions of this section shall not be otherwise employed on a full-time basis during the sick leave period. Sick leave benefits shall be denied for any day, during such period, on which any such employee performs full-time employment for another employer. The Commissioner of Administrative Services shall adopt regulations, in accordance with the procedures of chapter 54, to enforce the requirements of this subsection. (847)

Sec. 5-247a. Payment for accumulated sick leave for retiring state teachers. (848)(Text)

Any state employee who opted for membership in the teachers' retirement system pursuant to chapter 167a and who retires under the provisions of said chapter shall be compensated, effective as of the date of his date of retirement, at the rate of one-fourth of such employee's salary for sick leave accrued to his credit as of his last day on the active payroll, up to a maximum payment equivalent to sixty days' pay. Such payment for accumulated sick leave shall not be included in computing retirement income and shall be charged by the State Comptroller to the department, agency or institution in which the employee worked. (849)

Sec. 5-247b. Sick leave. Use by blind or disabled employees for assistance dog training. (850)(Text)

Each appointing authority shall grant to each full-time employee in a permanent position in the state service or full-time employee of a quasi-public agency who (1) is blind or physically disabled, and (2) has been employed for at least twelve consecutive months, the use of accumulated paid sick leave, not to exceed fifteen days, to participate in training conducted by a guide dog organization or assistance dog organization, provided such organization is a member of a professional association of guide dog or assistance dog schools, to prepare the employee to handle a guide dog or assistance dog for the employee's own use. The appointing authority may require up to seven days' advance notice of an employee's intention to use such leave and may require the employee to provide reasonable documentation that such leave is being taken for the purpose permitted under this section. (851)

Sec. 5-248. Leaves of absence. Reinstatement upon withdrawal of resignation. (852)(Text)

(a) An appointing authority may, with the approval of the Commissioner of Administrative Services, grant a leave of absence with full pay, part pay or without pay, subject to the regulations issued by the Commissioner of Administrative Services, to any employee in the classified service for a period not exceeding one year. Such leave may be extended beyond one year by an appointing authority, provided such action shall be approved by the Commissioner of Administrative Services. In the granting of a leave of absence without pay, the appointing authority shall notify the employee and the Commissioner of Administrative Services whether the position will be held awaiting the employee's return or whether reinstatement will be dependent upon whether or not a suitable vacancy is available. A leave of absence with full or part pay may be granted only for educational purposes in order to enable an employee to study or receive technical training which will increase his proficiency in his position or for such other purpose as may be specified by the Commissioner of Administrative Services to be in the best interests of the state.
