|Administrative Procedures Manual, I-10.8: Voluntary Shared Leave Program - There are occurrences brought about by prolonged medical conditions that cause employees to exhaust all available leave and therefore be placed on leave-without-pay. It is recognized that such employees forced to go on leave-without-pay could be without income at the most critical point in their work life. It is also recognized that fellow employees may wish to voluntarily donate some of their vacation leave so as to provide assistance to a fellow state employee. This policy provides an opportunity for employees to assist another affected by a medical condition that requires absence from duty for a prolonged period of time resulting in possible loss of income due to lack of accumulated leave.
Fayetteville Technical Community College
Voluntary Shared Leave Program
The Voluntary Shared Leave Program at FTCC allows employees to donate a portion of their accrued leave to another employee, in cases where the receiving employee (or an employee’s family member) has a prolonged medical condition (generally considered 20 consecutive days or more) and has used up all of his/her available leave. An employee wishing to participate in this program must contact the Human Resources Office and complete an application form with medical documentation attached.
If the Shared Leave request is approved, an announcement will be made inviting all employees to donate leave to this individual. Non-family employees may donate any accrued vacation or bonus leave hours. Family members at FTCC may donate vacation, bonus, and/or sick leave. Family members working at certain other State agencies may also be able to donate leave to relatives working at FTCC. All Shared Leave donations made to a fellow FTCC employee are confidential.
Please refer to the FTCC Administrative Procedures Manual, Section I-10.8 for more information and specific guidelines surrounding the Voluntary Shared Leave Program
