Under 2021 EPSL, full-time employees could take up to 80 hours of paid leave, while those who are part-time could take up to the two-week equivalent. Employees who have not used all of their hours under 2021 EPSL can use the remaining hours as Extended EPSL.  Employees will receive their regular rate of pay during Extended EPSL.

An employee may request Extended EPSL by speaking to their supervisor or by submitting a completed Extended EPSL Request FormPDF to their supervisor.

*Please note that if you work less than full-time, these hours shall be prorated according to the percent of your appointment*
