Sick Leave Bank

Established in 1989, the Sick Leave Bank (SLB) provides members who are experiencing serious illnesses an opportunity to request additional paid leave from the bank after exhausting all personal accrued leave.

Knoxville area SLB members with an emergency illness or injury should complete and print the Sick Leave Bank Withdrawal Request Application for Knoxville Area.

SLB members of the Institute of Agriculture with an emergency illness or injury, should complete and print the Sick Leave Bank Withdrawal Request Application for UTIA.

The completed form should be returned to Human Resources at 105 Student Services Building, Knoxville, TN.
