These employees are entitled to reimbursement for unused sick leave on an individual basis, up to a maximum of 100 days. Employees who choose this option will continue to be eligible for health benefits until September 5, 2022, unless they have health insurance from another source. 2) Employees may apply for a medical or religious exemption. If the request for medical or religious exemption is rejected, the applicant has 48 hours to appeal the decision, unless additional time is requested and granted. While the exemption/placement and/or appeal review procedure is ongoing, the person remains on leave without payment to the health services. Employees who are vaccinated and have requested accommodation have the option to take sick leave or annual leave while their application and appeal are pending, if the appeal is allowed, these employees will be reimbursed for any sick and/or annual leave taken retroactively to the date of their first request. Employees who receive an exemption remain on the payroll and retain their health benefits. The DOE may temporarily assign these employees to work in non-school DOE buildings such as DOE Central or temporarily designate the employee to perform work for another municipal agency that is not subject to a vaccination warrant.
