§ 1864.3a. Payment of salaries in cases of sickness or death
(a) In any college year, whenever a member of a faculty of any State College is prevented by illness or accidental injury from following his or her occupation, during the regular college year, or at any other time when performing his duties as a faculty member, there shall be paid to said employe the full salary to which the employe may be entitled as if said employe were actually engaged in the performance of duty for a period of fifteen days. Sundays, holidays and vacation periods shall not be counted as days lost. Such leave shall be cumulative from year to year but shall not exceed ninety days leave with full pay in any one year. No faculty members' salary shall be paid, however, if the accidental injury is incurred while the employe is engaged in remunerative work unrelated to school duties. Until such time as an employe has accumulated ninety days leave, the provisions of this act shall not preclude the granting of additional sick leave by administrative action.
(b) Whenever a faculty member shall be absent from duty because of a death in the immediate family of said employe, there shall be no deduction in salary of said employe for an absence not in excess of three days. Members of the immediate family shall be defined as father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, husband, wife, or parent-in-law. Also included shall be any near relative who resides in the same household or any person with whom the employe has made his home.
(c) All compensation required to be paid under the provisions of this act shall be paid to the employe in the same manner and at the same time said employe would have received his salary if actually engaged in the performance of his duties.
