COVID Leave for Family Member
This leave type is specific for employees who have a member of their immediate household that tested positive for COVID-19.
Employees are eligible for an initial two weeks of leave to cover the self-quarantine period. If symptoms are experienced after two weeks, the leave can be extended for up to ten additional weeks as covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Compensation While on Leave
The first two weeks of leave (during the quarantine period) are covered at your regular salary for the hours you were scheduled to work.
If the leave is extended, you will be able to use your accrued sick, Sick Leave Bank, vacation, and personal time just like a regular leave. When all banks are exhausted, your leave will transition to unpaid. Visit the Leave Page for more information on compensation during a leave of absence.
Employees who have been with DPS for at least 30 days.
