CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: September 12, 2000
Subject/Title: Credit for Unused Sick Leave
Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approve a Resolution that authorizes a one-time exception to Council Administrative
Policy No. 20-12, Sick Leave – Conversion to Deferred Compensation/cash
The City Council Personnel Sub-committee reviewed and approved the request
submitted by the employee.
In the Fall of 1999, staff met with the City Council Personnel Sub-committee
to discuss a request presented by a retiring employee to convert a part
of his unused sick leave to cash for deposit to the employee’s deferred
compensation account. This request was based on the employee’s limited
use of sick leave over his long term of employment with the City of Brentwood.
The Personnel Sub-committee agreed that it is reasonable to recognize
and reward a retiring long term employee that has not used much of the
sick leave accrued during their term of employment with the City of Brentwood.
The Sub-committee felt a retiring employee that has not used more than
one quarter of the sick leave accrued could be rewarded with the conversion
of sick leave accrual to cash. This particular employee is eligible to
utilize the “catch-up” provision of the deferred compensation plan and
he requested a cash conversion of $15,000 for deposit to his deferred
Beginning with Fiscal Year 2001/02, the Finance Department will budget
for the full financial value of accrued sick leave for all employees.
Funding of the current request is available through salary savings due
to vacant positions paid from the General Fund.
