Whenever feasible the Borough shall make an effort to place an injured employee in a job he/she is physically able to perform.
C. In the event the employee contends that he is entitled to a period of disability beyond the period established by the treating physician, or a physician employed by the Borough or by its insurance carrier, then, and in that event, the burden shall be upon the employee to establish such additional period of disability by obtaining a judgment in the Division of Workers’ Compensation establishing such further period of disability, and such findings by the Division of Workers’ Compensation, or by the final decision of the last reviewing court shall be binding upon the parties.
D. In the event a dispute arises as to whether an absence shall be designated as sick leave or as an injury on duty, the parties agree to be bound by the decision of an appropriate Workers’ Compensation judgment, or, if there is an appeal therefrom, the final decision of the last reviewing court.
E. All temporary disability benefits for the period that the Borough is paying the full salary of the employee as set forth in sub-paragraph A above accruing under the provisions of the Workers’ Compensation Act shall be paid over to the Borough.
ARTICLE XXI
LEAVE OF ABSENCE
A. Any full-time employee covered by this Agreement may take a leave of absence without pay from Borough duties, if recommendation therefore is given by the appropriate Department Head, and approval is granted by the Mayor and Council.
B. The leave of absence shall not exceed thirty (30) days unless otherwise established by federal or state law and is subject to renewal for reasons of personal illness, disability or other reasons deemed proper and approved by the Borough.
C. During the period of said leave, the Borough shall be under no obligation to pay for the benefits provided in this Agreement.
D. It is understood and agreed that no leave of absence shall be given if the employee has accumulated unused vacation time; nor shall any benefits accrue to the credit of the employee during the period of said leave.
E. The employee shall sign an affidavit wherein he/she shall state that during the period of leave of absence the employee shall engage in no remunerative employment.
F. Members of the bargaining unit shall be entitled to the provisions of either the Federal Family Medical and Leave Act (FMLA) or the State of New Jersey Family Leave Act (NJFLA).
1. An “eligible employee” means an employee of the Borough who has worked for the Borough for at least twelve (12) months for a minimum of either 1,000 base hours (NJFLA) or 1,250 hours (FMLA). Twelve (12) months will be set from both the twelve (12) months provisions to the commencement of a leave and/or the twelve (12) months commencing from the beginning of the leave itself.
2. “Family Leave” means leave from employment so that the employee may provide care made necessary by reason of:
a. birth of a child of the employee;
b. the placement of a child for adoption/foster care;
c. serious health condition of an employee’s family member; and/or,
d. employee’s own serious health condition which makes the employee unable to do his/her job (FMLA only).
e. For purposes of this Article:
(1) Family member is defined as a child, spouse or parent; (in law – NJFLA only)
(2) Serious health condition is defined as:
(a) impatient care in a hospital, hospice or residential care facility (NJFLA/ FMLA);
(b) continuing medical treatment or continuing supervision by a health care provider (NJFLA)
(c) any period of incapacity requiring absence from work, school or other regular daily activities of more than three (3) calendar days that also involves continuing treatment by a health care provider (FMLA);
(d) continuing treatment by a health care provider that is incurable or so serious that, if not treated would likely result in a period of incapacity of more than three (3) calendar days or for prenatal care.
3. Under the FMLA, an eligible employee is entitled to twelve (12) weeks of FMLA leave in a twelve (12) month period. However, to be eligible for a subsequent leave, the employee must meet the definition of “eligible employee”.
4. Under the NJFLA, an employee shall be entitled to a family leave of twelve (12) weeks in a twenty-four (24) month period.
5. Leaves under either the NJFLA or the FMLA are unpaid, unless the employee uses vacation, sick, personal and compensatory leave after written approval by the Borough.
6. The Borough will be, where applicable, responsible for compliance with the FMLA (18 U.S.C.A. 2601 to 2654) and the NJFLA (N.J.S.A. 34:11B-1 to–16).
ARTICLE XXII

A. All permanent full-time employees covered by this Agreement shall be entitled to three (3) days leave with pay upon the death of a member of the immediate family within the State of New Jersey and up to five (5) days leave with pay if outside the State with the consent of the Department Head or designated representative.
B. Immediate family shall include spouse, children, parents, brothers, sisters and grandparents and grandchildren of employee or spouse.
C. An employee must actually attend the funeral in order to be entitled to a leave under this provision.

ARTICLE XXIV

ARTICLE XXV

D. Exclusive of seasonal or temporary employees, the Employer agrees to submit to the Union each month a list of new employees hired, their job classification, home address and whether their employment is on a permanent or provisional basis.
E. The Employer agrees that new work rules or changes in existing rules shall not become effective until the majority representative is notified of such change.
