COVID-19 Related Leave

Compensation While on Leave

  • Under the Health Family and Workplace Act (HFWA), all employees are entitled to up to 2 weeks of pay under the public health emergency leave.

    Leave accruals, such as vacation or personal time, will count toward your 2 weeks of pay.

    Sick Leave Bank is only available for employees' own personal illness and does not count towards quarantine periods. 

    Sick time can only be used for an employee’s own illness - unless FMLA guidelines apply.

    *If an employee does not have enough accruals for the first 2 weeks of emergency leave, DPS will supplement the remaining hours of pay.

Who's Eligible?

  • All DPS employees are eligible for COVID-19 related leaves.
