On Saturdays, or other days on which 4 hours constitute a full work day, absences on account of illness shall be charged as follows: For 2 hours or less12 day; for more than 2 hours and not more than 3 hours—34 of a day; for more than 3 hours a full day.

(m) Notification of absence on account of sickness shall be given as soon as possible on the first day of absence. If such notification is not made in accordance with this paragraph, such absence may be charged to annual leave or leave without pay. Application for sick leave shall be filed within 2 days after return to duty.

(n) Application for sick leave for a period in excess of 3 days shall be supported by a certificate of a registered practicing physician or other practitioner, except that in remote localities where such certificate cannot reasonably be obtained, the applicant's signed statement as to the nature of the illness and the reason why a certificate is not furnished, may be accepted. For periods of 3 days or less, the total of which shall not exceed 12 days in any 1 calendar year, the applicant's signed statement on a prescribed form may be accepted.

(o) When sickness continuing for more than 5 days occurs within a period of annual leave, the period of illness may, upon presentation of the certificate of a registered practicing physician or other practitioner, be charged as sick leave, and the charge against annual leave reduced accordingly. No such charge against sick leave shall be made for illness which does not last more than 5 days. Application for such substitution of sick leave for annual leave shall be made within 2 days after the expiration of the annual-leave period: Provided, That this provision may be waived by the head of the department or agency concerned.

(p) Sick leave may not be granted for a period immediately following a period of absence in a non-pay status, unless and until there is a return to actual duty, nor may such leave without pay be converted into sick leave.

(9) Sick leave accumulated during temporary appointment shall be credited to an employee who receives a permanent appointment in the same Government agency without break in service but shall not be transferable elsewhere under any circumstances.

(r) In the case of an employee who was not entitled to sick leave under prior law, but who is now entitled thereto, sick leave as accumulated may be substituted for leave without pay or annual leave taken because of illness between January 1 and March 14, 1936.

(s) Sick leave taken in excess of 114 days a month during the period between January 1 and March 14, 1936, shall be charged against sick leave subsequently accumulating.

(t) Nothing in the regulations in this part shall be construed to prevent the continuance of any sick leave differential existing prior

(u) The heads or governing bodies of the various Government agencies to which this part applies shall be responsible for the proper administration of the regulations in this part in so far as they pertain to the granting of sick leave to employees under their respective jurisdictions; and they may, within the limits authorized by law, issue such regulations as are not inconsistent with the regulations in this part.**
