Extended Sick (EST) Salary Relief


In certain cases, departments may recover salary paid to an employee for time paid during an approved Extended Sick leave.  The central HR Extended Sick Pool may be charged for an eligible employee on an approved medical leave following the fifth work day.

Recovering EST for Biweekly Employees

Upon approval from The Hartford, biweekly-paid employees are automatically coded in Kronos with the “EST” earnings code, and all eligible pay will be charged by default to the HR Extended Sick Pool.  No additional action is necessary.

Recovering EST for Monthly Employees

Because they do not complete a daily timesheet, it is the department's responsibility to initiate the EST salary recovery for monthly employees.

See the EST Quick Guide for an example journal entry.  For more information about myHR journal entries, refer to the HRS102 Deployed Funding documentation.
