Medical Leave Bank Program [MLBP]

Mesa Public Schools would like to introduce our new Medical Leave Bank Program.  Effective July 1, 2021, the Medical Leave Bank Program will replace the Medical Leave Assistance Program. This program is designed to help qualified participating employees with the use of sick time during an unpaid FMLA or Long Term Leave.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Medical Leave Bank MLB

                                                                                                 Medical Leave Assistance Program

The District will administer a Medical Leave Bank to provide additional sick leave days to members of the Bank in the event of a prolonged illness/injury of their own or a family member if they have depleted their accrued sick, personal leave, and/or vacation days (if earned). For the purpose of this section, a “family member” is defined as in the Family Medical Leave Act as a spouse, child, or parent.

What is Prolonged Illness/Injury?  A prolonged illness/injury is defined as an “illness or injury” that is anticipated and certified to last for a continuous period of time of four (4) or more weeks as verified by a licensed health care practitioner. Medical Leave Bank days will not be granted for maternity, except when complications arise from pregnancy.

How many days can be requested?  You may request up to 20 days per fiscal year. 

Interested in participating in this new program?  All you need to do is enroll starting April 1, 2021 – May 15, 2021.  This benefit will go into effect at the beginning of the new plan year, July 1, 2021.
