The voluntary Leave Donation Program allows budgeted employees to donate leave to fellow faculty and staff who suffer from serious illness or injury. The LDP helps protect benefit-eligible employees who may face financial hardship if they exhaust all of their own vacation, sick, personal or sick pool leave due to an extended serious health condition. Potential leave recipients may request up to 25 days (five weeks) of donated leave during a 12-month period. The time may only be used for the recipient’s own serious health condition.
NOTE: Employees are not required to be in the college’s Sick Leave Pool to receive donated leave. To donate, complete an SPC Leave Donation Form and submit it to Laura Linder in Human Resources.
Eligible employees can take Family and Medical Leave for the following reasons:
You can take up to four days of personal leave with pay each fiscal year. These days are deducted from your earned sick leave and must be approved by your supervisor.
You earn sick leave at one day a month with no limit. Upon retirement or death, a percentage of the total accumulated sick leave days may be paid at the
employee's current daily rate of pay. This lump sum payment is governed by Rule 6Hx23-2.07. You can transfer accumulated sick leave from another Florida public education institution or state agency.
If you are a budgeted employees, you can participate in the Sick Leave Pool after one year of employment if you have earned at least nine days of sick leave. You must initially contribute five days of sick leave. This entitles you to use 45 days of donated sick leave after you exhaust your own sick and vacation leave.
You earn vacation leave depending on how long you've worked for a Florida public community or state college.
You cannot transfer more than 49 days of vacation leave to the new calendar year. Any leave over the 49 days on Dec. 31 will be reduced to 49 days on Jan. 1 each year.
