On the unfortunate occasion you experience a personal catastrophic event that results in absence from work for a prolonged period of time, University policies outline procedures for the use of applicable paid time off and leaves of absence without pay. In the event that you exhaust all applicable paid time off, coworkers in your work unit may want to donate some of their accumulated vacation time for you to use. 

Donation of any vacation time needs to be arranged through your Human Resources Representative so that donations remain anonymous. If it is determined you qualify for the vacation donation program, your Human Resources Representative will communicate there is a need for the time. If time is donated, they will inform you of how much time you have received, but not who has donated. Donations may only be made within your own work unit as defined by the Budget Executive. Employees may donate one day of accumulate vacation at a time.
