Sick Leave, Paid Time Off and Holiday Benefits

Macomb County understands the need to balance work life with home life and has generous policies for paid time off (PTO), illness, and holidays.


The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) gives workers and their families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits provided by their group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such as voluntary or involuntary job loss, reduction in the hours worked, transition between jobs, death, divorce, and other life events. Qualified individuals are required to pay the entire premium for coverage up to 102 percent of the cost of the plan.
