Catastrophic Leave Program
The Catastrophic Leave Policy is designed to assist employees who have exhausted all paid time credits and exhausted any other paid source (including State Disability Income-SDI) due to a serious or catastrophic illness (including a serious catastrophic response to COVID-19), injury or condition of the employee or his/her extended family.
This policy allows other employees to make grants of time to that employee so that s/he can remain in a paid status for a longer period of time, thus partially relieving the financial impact of the illness, injury or condition. The maximum amount of time that can be donated is 1 year.
For more information, review the policy and obtain application forms.
