The Short Term Illness and Injury Plan (STIIP) is a benefit for employees who are unable to work due to illness or injury.
All regular employees are covered. Contact us to find out about specific eligibility requirements for other groups – such as auxiliary or part-time employees. Employees on sick leave must:
STIIP benefits are set according to your length of service and employee type.
* Cannot exceed maximum weekly sickness benefit set by Employment Insurance
** Maximum benefit period for auxiliary employees who qualify for benefits is 7 months.
A sick leave is considered to be one continuous leave if the employee has been off for the same illness/injury without returning to work for 15 consecutive scheduled work days before taking another day for the same illness or injury.
Unbenefited auxiliary employees with at least 400 hours working in the same ministry without loss of seniority receive 60% of normal average earnings from the 15th day of the illness or injury to a maximum of 15 weeks.
Stage 3 STIIP benefit may be supplemented – or topped up to 100% of regular pay – by using other available time allotments such as vacation credits, exclusion supplementary credit or compensatory time off. Enter your top-up option directly in the STIIP module of Time On Line or submit a leave management transaction.
A full-time regular employee only earns vacation credits for a given month if they have received at least ten days (70 hours) pay at straight time rates in that month. To prevent miscalculations and unnecessary overpayments from occurring, take into account that your vacation will be prorated.
Existing benefits – like MSP, extended health and dental – and pension contributions continue without interruption, as if you were still working.
