Catastrophic Leave Program   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Education Code 44043.5 authorizes the Board of Education to establish a catastrophic leave program, which permits employees to donate accrued vacation and sick leave credits to other employees who experience a catastrophic personal or family illness or injury. This policy may be subject to collective bargaining agreements.

When a catastrophic illness or injury incapacitates an employee or a member of his/her family for an extended period of time and the employee has exhausted all paid leaves of absence, other employees may donate accrued vacation and/or sick leave credits to that employee under the specific requirements of the district's catastrophic leave program.

Donations made under the catastrophic leave program shall be strictly voluntary.
