Sick Leave Buy Back

Sick Leave Buy Back

Employees with good or perfect attendance in a fiscal year may be eligible to “buy back” a portion of their unused sick leave as determined in the collective bargaining / meet and confer agreement between your unit and The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC).

Open Participation Period

The automated Sick Leave Buy Back program (SLBB) is currently open through October 13, 2016. All active employees will have access to verify eligibility and participate in the SLBB incentive program by logging into Employee Self Service (ESS). The new process replaces the printed notices previously sent to eligible employees in each bargaining unit / meet and confer group. This initiative is in support of Goal #2: Continuous Improvement of the District’s Strategic Plan, School Board Policy 7014:  Environmental Stewardship and to improve the overall efficiency and accuracy of these programs.
