As a W2 Travel Clinical Staff with Medely, you will accrue time that can be used as Paid Sick Leave. You will accrue one (1) hour of paid sick leave time for every thirty (30) hours worked in a week. While you start accruing from your first day of your assignment, the accrued hours cannot be used until you have passed ninety (90) days of consecutive employment. You have the opportunity to accrue up to a maximum of eighty (80) hours of paid sick leave in a calendar year. That balance can carry over into the following calendar year without a cap on the amount of hours carried over. Upon separation from Medely, the balance of accrued sick leave hours is not eligible to be paid out. That balance does however carry over/get reinstated when you sign on for a new assignment or extension.
