Guide to Leave Benefits for Employees and Supervisors

This handbook was prepared to assist SUNY Plattsburgh supervisors in the interpretation and application of the attendance and leave provisions of the collective bargaining agreements and the Attendance Rules for employees in the New York State departments and institutions. It should be viewed as a worksite companion piece to the Department of Civil Service New York State Attendance and Leave Manual, which is available in the Human Resource Services department. It is intended to offer guidance to supervisors in day-to-day issues of attendance supervision. It is not intended to be applicable to all situations, nor does it supersede the terms of duly negotiated agreements, laws, rules or regulations, or otherwise established policies or practices of State departments or agencies.
