While on RPL, employees will receive 50% of their monthly or hourly base pay rate. RPL is payable after seven calendar days or the exhaustion of all available accruals, whichever is greater.
Each new illness/injury period requires employees to satisfy a new elimination period, and RPL hours cannot be supplemented with other accrued leave.
Granted, unused RPL hours expire upon the employee’s return
When an employee is on RPL, UTMB will continue to contribute its share of the employee’s insurance premiums. The employee is required to pay their share of the premiums in accordance with applicable billing procedures. Failure by the employee to make the monthly payments may result in the discontinuation of insurance coverage.
Employees also do not accrue PTO hours or holiday hours when on RPL.
Employees may not donate granted RPL hours to another employee or to UTMB’s Major Disaster Recovery Bank (MDRB), upon activation.
Employees who separate or retire from UTMB with granted, unused RPL hours will not be paid for these hours.
Upon the death of an employee, UTMB will not pay the estate of the deceased for any RPL hours granted but not used.
