sick leave with pay accrues to a member of the Firefighting Division of the Fire Department of the District of Columbia on the basis of two-fifths of a day for each full biweekly pay period. (b) Sick leave provided by this section, which is not used by an employee, accumulates for use in succeeding years. (c) When required by the exigencies of the situation, a maximum of 30 days sick leave with pay may be advanced for serious disability or ailment, except that a maximum of 24 days sick leave with pay may be advanced to a member of the Firefighting Division of the Fire Department of the District of Columbia. § 6308, Transfers between positions under different leave systems The annual and sick leave to the credit of an employee who transfers between positions under different leave systems without a break in service shall be transferred to his credit in the employing agency on an adjusted basis under regulations prescribed by the Civil Service Commission, unless the individual is excepted from this subchapter by section 6301(2) (ii), (iii), (vi), or (vii) of this title. However, when a former member receiving a retirement annuity under sections 521-535 of title 4, District of Columbia Code, is reemployed in a position to which this subchapter applies, his sick leave balance may not be recredited to his account on the later reemployment. § 6309.

A Saturday occurring in a period of annual or sick leave taken in a smaller number of days, at the option of the carrier, may be charged to his accrued leave and when so charged he is entitled to be paid for that absence. § 6310. Leave of absence; aliens The head of the agency concerned may grant leave of absence with pay, not in excess of the amount of annual and sick leave allowable to citizen employees under this subchapter, to alien employees who occupy positions outside the United States. §6311.
