What patients and families need to know
Eligible staff members accrue vacation based on the number of hours worked at Children's. Vacation is accrued per pay period, according to staff level, and years of service. The number of weeks accrued varies from 2 to 5 weeks per year.
Sick leave benefits are provided to ensure income during periods when employees must be absent from work due to personal illness or injury. Eligible staff accrue sick leave up to a total of 12 days annually, based on the number of hours worked.
Children’s currently recognizes nine federal holidays as paid holidays. In addition, each benefit eligible employee receives an annual "floating holiday," added to their vacation accruals to use as they wish.
It is the policy of Children’s National to offer 100 percent paid maternity, paternity, or adoption, leave for both men and women as they strive to balance their work with the challenging role of becoming parents, or as their families grow.
