Cancer screening leave

New York State Civil Service Law entitles all district employees to take up to four (4) hours of paid leave annually, without charge to leave credits, to undertake a screening for cancer of any kind. 

Travel time is included in the four-hour cap. 

Absence beyond the four (4) hours must be charged to leave credits or the time will be docked. 

The leave is not cumulative and expires at the close of business of the last day of each fiscal year. In addition to completing the form below (you will receive a confirmation of your submission), you must also enter your absence to Absence Management. Please indicate “personal” or “sick” as the reason for this leave. 

Please be aware this process takes a minimum of one to two payroll cycles to be reflected on your paystub.
