If the sick leave balance is greater then 80 hours, the PPS will reduce the sick leave balance to 80 hours 16 days from the separation date. The PPS will maintain 80 hours of sick leave balance for 6 months. Six months from the separation date, the PPS will initilize sick leave hours to zero. If the sick leave balance is less than 80 hours, the PPS will zero out the balance 6 months after the separation date.
Regardless of the sick leave balance, after three months of separation, the PPS will adjust the balance to zero. This applies to separation reason codes RA, RB, RC, and RD.
