       (1)     The decision whether sick leave pools will be established within an agency
               shall be the sole responsibility of the head of the employing agency. The
               agency head shall determine the number of sick leave pools, if any, that will
               be established in the agency, the employees who will be eligible to
               participate in each pool that is established, and will designate the person
               responsible for administering each such pool, herein referred to as the
               Administrator. The agency head shall appoint at least three employees who

               records relative to all functions of the pool.

Participation in the sick leave pool shall at all times be voluntary on the part of any
employee. An employee shall be eligible to participate in the sick leave pool after

employee shall contribute 8 hours of sick leave in the first month of eligibility, and
thereafter, each full-time participant shall contribute 8 hours each time the pool is
depleted. A part-time employee shall contribute sick leave on a pro-rata basis in the first
month of eligibility and at each time the pool is depleted. All sick leave contributed shall
be removed from the employee's sick leave account and be placed into the sick leave pool
account.

       (1)     The agency head shall determine, or may delegate to the committee to
               determine, the following:

               (a)     The number of hours to be deposited in the sick leave pool which
                       will activate the pool for use by eligible employees.

               (b)     The maximum number of hours of sick leave in the pool which any
                       one employee may use.

               (c)     The number of hours which will constitute depletion of the pool and
                       which requires further contribution of the participating employee.
                       Each full-time participant shall contribute 8 hours to the pool to
                       replenish its balance. Each part-time participant shall contribute
                       hours on a pro-rata basis.



                                                   2
This rule was statutorily repealed effective January 1, 2002. It is provided for informational purposes
                                                 only.


                       1.      If the participating full-time employee's individual sick leave
                               balance is less than 8 hours and a part-time participant's
                               balance is less than the pro-rated amount at the time the pool
                               is depleted, he/she shall contribute all hours accumulated,
                               and shall contribute the remainder as soon as additional sick
                               leave credits have been accrued by the employee. The
                               employee shall not be allowed to use his/her sick leave
                               credits until the amount owed to the pool has been
                               contributed.

                       2.      When a participating employee repeatedly fails to have a
                               sufficient balance in his/her individual sick leave account
                               when requested to contribute the appropriate hours to the
                               pool, the reasons for the use of sick leave credits by the
                               employee shall be investigated by the administrator for a
                               determination as to whether the employee's membership in
                               the pool should be cancelled.          The decision for such
                               cancellation shall be by majority vote of the committee.

       (2)     A participating employee shall be allowed to "donate" to the pool up to 16
               hours of unused or unpaid sick leave from the employee's individual sick
               leave balance at the time of retirement or termination from state
               government.

       (3)     Any sick leave contributed to the sick leave pool by a participating
               employee shall be forfeited upon the employee's cancellation of
               membership in the pool, upon retirement, upon termination from state
               government, or upon termination from the agency unless transferred
               pursuant to paragraph (7).

       (4)     A participating employee shall be granted sick leave from the pool only
               after depletion of all personal accrued sick, annual, and compensatory leave
               credits. Sick leave withdrawn from the pool may be used only for the
               employee's personal illness, accident, or injury.

       (5)      A participating employee who withdraws sick leave hours from the pool
               shall not be required to replace those hours, except as a regular contributing
               member of the pool.

       (6)     Sick leave credits may be drawn from the sick leave pool by a part-time
               employee on a pro-rata basis.

       (7)     An employee who moves to another position in state government may
               transfer from one agency pool to another agency pool, provided the
               eligibility criteria are comparable or the administrators of the pools have
               agreed on provisions for the transfer of sick leave credits.

       (8)     Alleged abuse of the use of the sick leave pool shall be investigated by the
               administrator of the pool, and if warranted, the participating employee
               shall repay all sick leave credits drawn from the pool and may have his
               membership in the pool cancelled by majority vote of the committee. In
               addition, the employee may be subject to disciplinary action in accordance
               with the agency's procedure for taking disciplinary actions.
