Under the State’s Leave Sharing Program, an employee may be eligible to give and receive donated vacation credits within their department. The purpose of this program is to ease the burden of fellow departmental co-workers who would otherwise need to take time off from work without pay to recover from a serious personal illness/injury or to care for a family member who has a serious personal illness/injury and is incapable of self care. Employees interested in donating vacation leave credits or who wish to request leave sharing, should contact their Departmental Personnel Office for more information and forms.
