  • Sick time is paid at 100 percent of the current rate of pay.
  • A continuous absence for more than 5 days requires a doctor’s statement.
  • Unused sick time will not carry over at the end of each calendar year.
  • Unused sick days are not paid upon separation of employment.
  • In the event of a major illness or a serious accident (which may cause an exempt Outfitter to need earning replacement beyond the sick pay listed above), the company provides paid Short-Term and Long-Term Disability coverages. 

non-Exempt (Hourly) Outfitters
