Public Service Leave

Non-Union Staff Public Service Leave

Union Staff Public Service Leave

Syracuse University provides full pay to bargaining unit employees for time spent fighting fires during normal working hours, providing the employee is a bona fide member of a unit that is engaged in such activities, and has presented proof of such. Also, full pay is provided to a bargaining unit employee who is a bona fide member of a unit that is engaged in emergency medical services (EMTs), and has presented proof of such. The employee is not to schedule any volunteer hours that conflict with his/her normal working hours or answer any calls while working. (This means if an employee is called out on an emergency during non-working hours and it extends into working hours, the employee will be paid for the time spent handling that emergency.)
