Sick leave, Medical Information, Reduced Workload, and Disability

At Algonquin, HR23 is the Sick Leave (Short Term and Long Term Disability) policy.

We have helped a number of members with questions such as those listed below. Contact your steward or the office immediately if you can answer yes to any of these questions:

  • Have you been asked to provide medical evidence to support sick leave days?
  • Has your doctor advised you to take time off from work?
  • Have you been denied sick leave for any reason?
  • Have you used all or almost all of your sick leave credits?
  • Has the College indicated a desire to contact your doctor directly?
  • Have you been asked to provide medical evidence to support an application for LTD?
  • Have you had an application for LTD rejected?
  • Do you require accommodation or think you might require it because of a disability?
  • Have you considered requesting a reduced workload for any reason?
  • Do you believe you could return to work from sick leave or LTD but would require an accommodation or a reduced workload?
  • Are you in a position to earn outside income while on leave of any kind?

Return to work

At Algonquin College, HR15 is the Return to Work with Modified Workload policy. One of our accommodation stewards will accompany you to your return to work meeting.
