The Business, Finance and Audit Committee approved the waiver of required written certification from a health care provider for those employees with flu or flu-like symptoms during the 2009-10 academic year. The waiver is in accordance with recommendations by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control. Current policy stated that UW institutions require written certification for use of sick leave for absences of more than five consecutive full working days. The waiver is designed to address concerns that the policy requiring written certification might discourage people from self-isolating, or staying home when feeling ill. The waiver does not preclude the UW from investigating any situation in which supervisors suspect abuse of the sick leave policy. Read more.
