Drexel University is committed to the health of our work force, which is why we offer all non-faculty employees paid time off in case of a personal illness or injury, the illness or injury of a family member, or for attending health care appointments. Exempt employees accrue one sick day per month, while non-exempt employees accrue sick leave based on their paid hours of work in a given pay period. Sick time is also used in the case of bereavement. For more information, including details on how sick leave is accrued and the proper call-out procedures, please read the Sick Leave Policy.
