I found on travelnet that the employee is not to travel while on fmla, leave/sick list, etc. Does that also apply to eligible family/buddies, etc.

You can also get CP permission. Basically if its anything other than you personally have the flu/cold they will give it. Like you are caring for someone who is sick, or you broke your arm.....

Actually, you can travel on FMLA even if it is you. Senario: You travel to see a Dr (specialist). As well, under the Medical Privacy Act, the company has no business even asking you. Believe me, management (HR) treads very lightly upon this and if need be when you shove back ~ they get very quiet and decide to move on to easier pray.

My Drs. happen to be in Jackson Hole, WY and St Pete, FL during the winters. :)

All of your pass riders travel unrestricted without you. I wouldn't play with your travel benies if you call in sick and then nr yourself. If you called in and still want to go on vacation, js on another airline. If it is legit and you can still fly as a passenger just not well enough to be the pilot, call the cp support center and the will clear you to nr no problem. Personally I wouldn't just chance it wo permission on a sick call. I have heard some stories but who knows it might be just stories of people getting their privileges yanked.

I wouldn't suggest this as CASS logs you in and the company will get a flag.

thanks guys, you are both correct. Family can travel, but the employee can not travel while on sick, according to the duty pilot. (thats new to NWA folks)

Just don't sit in the cockpit (get a seat in the cabin). CASS verification is only required if sitting in the cockpit.

A lot of airlines now are using CASS for employment verification when you check in for the jump-seat regardless of whether you will need to sit in the cockpit. There are a number of airlines in CASS that consider CASS participation as a reciprocal agreement. That is not true for the majors, who do want reciprocal agreements. OTOH, being in CASS makes it easier to get the reciprocal agreements.
I think all airlines should participate in the program, though many don't due to cost issues ( which actually aren't that much on a per person basis).

Do not JS. CASS will flag you. So will Non-reving. Buy a ticket on another carrier.

I'm surprised the company cares that much to chase after sick calls. I guess it's not acceptable to miss a commute, then call in sick? With such a weak commuter clause, what else are we supposed to do?

That's also one not to do. List nr, show and check in, not make it, then call in sick. You need to call in honest.

There are certain groups within this pilot group that are habitual offenders of sick time and the policies. Because of this, they watch the sick calls and how they correlate to non-rev and cass.
I was acarsed last week about a trip and I was just coming to work on a JS. Now how do you think they found out what I was doing?
It is simple, Call in Honest, do not abuse your sick time and non-rev bennies, and do not try and cheat the system. You may not get caught, but if you are caught it is the one thing that no one has any patience for. They will yank you privileges. They are not a right, but a privilege, and I have seen it happen.

It is just a word of caution. If you are going to play the system, do not be cheap and try and non-rev or JS to where you family is vacationing. Buy a ticket.
