Employees accrue sick leave at the rate of 1 day per month (total of 10 days for 10-month staff, 12 days for 12-month staff). New employees are advanced the full annual amount of sick leave days up front that they would accrue during their first year, and the days are immediately available for use (new 10-month staff starting the year would receive 10 days at the start of their contract)

12-month staff receive a total of 12 vacation days per year (accrued at the rate of 1 day per month; 1/2 day per payday). After 5 years of service, the accrual rate increases to 1.25 days per month, and after 10 years the accrual rate increases to 1.5 days per month.

10-month staff receive 2 personal leave days per year, and any balance remaining at the end of the year is added to the employee's existing sick leave balance.
