Catastrophic Leave-Sharing Program for Non-Exempt Non-Union Staff

The Catastrophic Leave-Sharing Program gives non-exempt staff a chance to support their co-workers who are experiencing a catastrophic illness or injury. The program allows eligible staff to donate sick leave to a Catastrophic Leave Sharing Pool to be used by other eligible staff members.

Catastrophic illness or injury means a physical or mental illness or injury as certified by a licensed physician that will result in the inability of the employee to perform the essential functions of the job, with or without reasonable accommodations, for more than 30 work days on a consecutive or intermittent basis.

Contact Human Resources for specifics on donating and receiving from this program. The amount of paid leave is calculated based on the employee’s budgeted weekly hours.
