1. Sick Leave Policy – Discussion on sick leave policy for all staff, Doug and Michelle researched and compiled information from Yale, Middlebury, Wellesley, CT, Trinity and Bowdoin. All felt it was important to have sick leave for admin staff. It would provide clarity to many and help with abusers. The majority liked the clarity of Bowdoin’s policy. Martha will take a closer look at Bowdoin’s policy and incorporate into a draft for Williams.
