Breast Cancer Screening
Legislation enacted in August 2002 (Chapter 362, Laws of 2002) amended the Civil Service Law to entitle employees to take up to four (4) hours of paid leave annually for screening for breast cancer without charge to leave credits. The benefit is available to both female and male employees. Breast cancer screening includes physical exams and mammograms for the detection of breast cancer. Travel time is included in this four hour cap. Absence beyond the four hour cap must be charged to leave credits.
Employees are entitled to a leave of absence for breast cancer screening scheduled during the employees’ regular work hours. Employees who undergo screenings outside their regular work schedule do so on their own time. For example, employees are not granted compensatory time off for breast cancer screenings that occur on a regularly scheduled break or day off.
The employee may be required to provide satisfactory medical documentation to substantiate that their absence was for the purpose of screening for breast cancer. Failure to provide appropriate documentation may result in the employee being charged a sick or personal day.
Leave for breast cancer screening is not cumulative and expires at the close of business on the last day of each calendar year.
