Will the sick leave conversion programs be impacted ?
There are 2 separate sick leave conversion programs: the Accumulated Sick Leave Conversion Credit (ASLCC) program and the Supplemental Health Insurance Conversion Credit (SHICC) program.
a. The ASLCC program is provided for in sections 40.05(4)(b) & (bc), Wisconsin Statutes, and administered by the Department of Employee Trust Funds (DETF). There is no intent to change this program as a result of the implementation of a new personnel system.
b. The SHICC program is also administered by the DETF, but it is not authorized by state statute. Rather, it is provided for in the compensation plan. There is no intent to change this program as a result of the implementation of a new personnel system.
