Erlanger Health System offers all regular full-time and part-time employees
an extended illness bank (EIB). EIB can be accessed immediately for an
employee hospitalization or surgery. EIB can also be used after 30 hours
of PAL for an employee illness. EIB days begin to accrue upon the date of
employment. EIB will be available for use by hourly employees upon
completion of the entry probation period. EIB is available to salaried
employees as soon as earned.
EIB is accrued bi-weekly on worked hours and for other approved paid time

per pay period. EIB is not accrued for on-call time. Available EIB
may be taken to supplement job injury pay. EIB will be accrued for time
off due to Low Census—whether the time off is paid or unpaid.
