Any faculty member taking a sick leave from work up to 2 days (including the second day) is considered to be on an administrative leave. However, the faculty is expected to immediately notify of the Office of the Dean of his/her college, and if the sick leave extends beyond the second day, the faculty is required to obtain a medical report and submit it to the Office of the Dean within the initial term of 10 days. The Office of the Dean is subsequently responsible for passing the report to the office of Human Resources Directorate. Without a medical report, the total length of administrative leaves taken due to sickness cannot exceed twelve (12) working days in one (1) year, and the faculty member must not subsequently be asked to perform any compensatory work.

In case incapacity to work reports are received, Koç University shall continue to pay wages to the academic personnel.
