From the Palatine Tea Party…
(Palatine, Illinois) – The Village of Schaumburg clearly indicates in their employee handbook, which we obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, how employee sick time balances can be paid out.

Taxes are high because of government programs like this and then attempts to hide the actual cost which is in the millions and call it “Progress Through Thoughtful Planning” is disingenuous. Illinois is fiscally broke and citizens need to question the need for expensive luxury government programs. The taxpayers who work in the private sector cannot continue to support these exquisite government programs which are mostly non-existent in the private sector.
“Accrued, unused sick leave will be forfeited at the time of retirement, separation or termination of employment, unless an employee has accumulated a minimum of 700 hours of unused sick leave for 35 hour work week employees and 800 hours of unused sick leave for 40 hour work week employees, has or will have as of the effective date of retirement, separation or termination at least 25 years of service and has given the Village irrevocable written notice to retire at least ninety (90) days prior to the effective date of retirement, separation or termination except in the case of involuntary separation or termination. The eligible employee will upon retirement, separation or termination other than for poor performance, malfeasance or misconduct be paid for fifty percent (50%) of all accrued sick leave hours at their regular salary.”
There is a good chance your local government has a similar program. You can directly contact Al Larson 847-923-4704 and email the entire Schaumburg Village Board, click here.
