Q. Back in 2002, I went on LWOP due to PCS. It expired in 2003, and a month later, I was picked back up at a job and told that I could not have my sick leave reinstated. How can I find out if I am still eligible to have mine looked at and reinstated?
A. Unless you are a Postal Service employee, you are entitled to have your sick leave reinstated and credited to your account, regardless of how long your break in service was. If you are a U.S. Postal Service employee, that rule only applies if the break in service was less than three years.
