Question: “Is it possible to have your annual leave converted to sick leave?”
Answer: Annual leave hours cannot be converted to sick leave hours. However, if an employee has exhausted his or her sick leave hours and needs additional hours because of an extended illness or recuperation from an injury or surgery, then the employee can use his or her unused annual leave hours for sick leave.
