Employee and Family Assistance Program may authorize sick leave for employees participating in the E.A.P. program.
Employee sick leave is authorized by E.A.P. or by the employee's supervisor upon certification by a medical practitioner under the Health Services Insurance Act who states the period of absence on a sick slip. See also GEMA 28:14-15.
E.A.P. may authorize sick leave if the client employee is referred to treatment by E.A.P. Before authorizing sick leave in these situations, E.A.P. consults with Human Resources and the manager to determine if the employee has sick leave benefits available. E.A.P. authorizes sick leave with pay when sick leave benefits are available, or sick leave without pay when no sick leave benefits are available.
|Medical practitioner under the Health Services Insurance Act||Medical practitioner means a person lawfully entitled to practice medicine in the place where he/she renders medical services.|
