The New Jersey Supreme Court struck down the appeal division on the issue and found that teachers were not allowed. As the exclusive representative of teachers, the association with the Board of Directors joined the NAC in 2015 and limited compensation for unused sick leave to $15,000. A teacher`s right to be compensated for unused sick leave is only if that teacher has followed the time prescribed by the collective agreement and has retired or separated from the school district. The NAC 2015 replaced the NAC 2012 and nothing in the 2012 NAC proposed an additional entitlement to compensation for unused sick leave at the expiration of the 2012 NAC. As a result, the 2012 NAC did not apply to teachers and their entitlement to sick leave compensation was limited to $15,000 under the 2015 NAC. Cliffside Park Education Association (“Association”) is the exclusive representative of collective agreements for all teachers employed by the Cliffside Park Board of Education (“Board”). The association and the Board of Directors entered into a collective agreement in 2012 (“2012 NAC”). The 2012 NAC stated that compensation for unused sick leave at the time of retirement or separation was limited to 25,000 $US. In 2015, the federation and the Board of Directors signed a new NAC (“2015 NAC”) that reduced the cap on unused sick leave to $15,000.
The 2015 NAC did not contain a “grandfather” clause. On April 20, 2020, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued an important decision on a teacher`s right to be compensated for unused sick leave upon retirement or separation from an education board. In Barila v. The Board of Education of Cliffside Park, the state Supreme Court, has found that the clear terms of the collective agreement between the teachers` union and the school board impose the right to sickness pay in the event of retirement, and such an agreement does not violate any right to free movement. The complainants in this case were teachers who accumulated more than $15,000 from the unused sick period. They sued the House on the grounds that they were entitled to an unused sick leave allowance up to a ceiling of $25,000 under the 2012 NAC for a variety of reasons, including their belief that they never accepted the new $15,000 $US cap.

In NYC, a teacher earns 1 day of payment for every two days up to 200 days (then a payment would be made for 100 days…) The payment is made in 3 installments. I think NJ will eventually be sure, along with many teachers, that they will accumulate no more than the days for which they can be paid, and therefore your children will suffer with higher-than-expected “sick days.” In addition, a NYC teacher can give days to another teacher if he or she is needed for a catastrophic illness. ..
