This policy applies to all full-time employees of the College who qualify for sick leave payout under this Policy.
A full-time employee who resigns from employment with the College and who prior to the effective date of the resignation provides official notification to the College that the resignation is in connection with retirement, may receive a pay out of a portion of unused sick leave as set forth below.

For an employee who is a member of Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), Ohio Public Employees Retirement System Law Enforcement (OPERS-LE) or State Teachers Retirement System (STRS):
The employee has actually applied for and been informed in writing by OPERS, OPERS-LE or STRS that he or she is eligible to receive a service retirement benefit.

The employee, as of the effective date of the resignation, is at least sixty (60) years old and has at least ten (10) years of continuous service with the College.
