Regular employees get leave time and your leave time is your sick time. UAA does good if you are sick and giving you the day off as they don't want everyone on campus to get sick. I think you get equal sick and time off days or close to it. Then as you progress you get more time off. I think you get 2 weeks a year to start and then it just grows. You can sell your leave if you need money, like 40 hours a year. Some departments are different.
I dont get sicks days as I am not full-time. but if i do get sick ithey do the best they can with the scedule
