Catastrophic Leave Drive Donation Program

The Catastrophic Leave Drive Donation Program allows for the donation and receipt of vacation and sick leave credits between eligible employees. Any employee who accrues sick leave and/or vacation may donate leave credits to other employees on the same campus, regardless of bargaining unit representation. Donated leave may be used by an employee who has a catastrophic illness or injury and has exhausted all types of pay normally available to cover the required absence from work.

Employees are also eligible to receive catastrophic leave drive donations due to a catastrophic illness or injury of an immediate family member.

Immediate family member includes:

  • The employee's spouse or domestic partner;
  • The employee's, spouse's or domestic partner's parent, grandparent, great-grandparent, sibling, child or grandchild (including foster, adopted and step);
  • The employee's son-in-law, daughter-in-law; and
  • A person living in the immediate household of the employee, except domestic employees, roomers, boarders, and/or roommates.

The amount of hours that can be donated during a fiscal year vary per employee category. Please refer to the Cal Poly Catastrophic Leave Program Flyer.
