At the start of a new year, will my sick leave benefits will again start from zero (0) and have to accumulate ?

Upon hiring, sick leaves are cumulative. I am now a regular employee 11 months with the company and have accumulated a number of sick leaves. At the start of a new year, will my sick leave benefits will again start from zero (0) and have to accumulate again monthly? Meaning, I will have no SL again for another 6 months, even I am a regular employee. Thank you in advance.

    Well in Australia that’s incorrect as you are entitled to a set amount of sick leaves days per annum. But generally they are like annual(holiday) leave, its accumulative, you don’t need to accumulate it every year.

    Generally, sick leave accumulates until you use it, rolling over year to year. Your company may have a cap on how many days you can roll over total, but most don’t.

    As a matter of fact, many companies allow you to, when you retire, apply your accumulated sick leave to your time with the company, allowing you to earn a higher retirement benefit. As an example, with my office, if I retire with 30 years of service and 365 days of sick leave, they will calculate my retirement as though I had worked 30 years and 182 days. I get credit for working 6 months longer than I actually will work. Some companies would give 365 days of credit toward retirement for 365 days of sick leave.

    Check with your boss to get the specifics for your company. They might have a cap on how much you can accumulate and they might not. Also, be aware that they might have a cap on how much vacation time you can roll over, even if they allow unlimited sick leave to accumulate.
