Q May municipal employees accrue sick leave if the municipality has not adopted a leave policy or if the policy is not in the personnel handbook?

A Municipal employees may only accrue leave if the municipality has enacted leave policy as part of the benefits package for its employees. The absence of leave policies in a personnel handbook would not alter the effectiveness of the leave policies themselves, provided the policies were properly enacted by the municipality.
