5406 Leave Sharing

The district will establish and administer a leave sharing program through which eligible employees may donate excess leave for use by an eligible recipient who is suffering from, or has a relative or household member suffering from, an extraordinary or severe illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition, who is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking; who is sick or temporarily disabled because of pregnancy disability; who is on parental leave; or who has been called to service in the uniform services.
Such a program is intended to extend leave benefits to an eligible recipient who otherwise would have to take leave without pay or terminate his or her employment with the district.
The superintendent or designee is directed to develop a procedure for administering the leave sharing program in a manner consistent with state law and applicable collective bargaining agreements.
