Effectively Managing Substitute Paid Sick Leave

Managing paid sick leave for variable-hour employees such as substitutes is daunting. You’re charged with tracking which substitutes are eligible, how often they’ve worked, how much time they’ve accrued, how much leave they’ve already used, if they’re being accurately paid for their sick days… As if you aren’t busy enough! But the alternative —front-loading sick days for certain employees — is neither elegant nor economic.

Take a look at an estimate of how much it would cost your district to give each eligible substitute their sick leave days upfront.*

If you aren’t sure, just take your best guess at how many substitutes would be given paid sick days upfront.
