Sick Leave Bank

The Employee Sick Leave Bank (SLB) provides sick leave to qualifying members who are medically unable to perform the duties of their jobs.

Members may receive a maximum of 90 days from the bank for the following:

  • A personal illness, injury, accident, disability, medical condition or quarantine
  • A condition related to, resulting from or recurring from a previously diagnosed condition for which the Bank granted sick leave

The SLB is administered by the Tennessee Department of Human Resources.  To enroll you must be a full-time state employee for 12 consecutive months and have at least six days of sick leave by October 31 of your enrollment year. New members must contribute four sick leave days to enroll. Thereafter, one day of sick leave per year will be assessed each October 1 to maintain membership in the bank.  If you are already enrolled, you do not need to take any action.

Open enrollment is August 1 — October 31 each year.
