Extended Illness Bank

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 (i.e., jury duty, bereavement leave, seminars, PAL, EIB, etc.) up to 75 hours 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.

Regardless of length of service, EIB accrual remains consistent for all employees per year.  EIB is accrued for full-time employees as shown below.  Part-time employees accrue EIB on a pro-rated basis.
