How to use "Sick leave" in context?

Sick leave is a policy in many workplaces that allows employees to take time off for illnesses or injuries. In some cases, sick leave may be converted to disability leave. Sick leave is usually accrued at the rate of one day for every thirty days of service, with a minimum of four days.
