Jefferson Lab Vacation Donation Program - Open Enrollment begins today

We are pleased to offer another open enrollment session for the Vacation Donation Program. The enrollment session begins today, September 19, and will be offered through Monday, September 26, at 5 p.m.

The program is designed to provide financial assistance to employees during approved unpaid leaves related to a medical illness for themselves or an eligible family member. The employee must have exhausted all of his/her available sick and vacation leave and would otherwise be subject to a severe loss of income aside from this program. Other eligibility criteria must also be met. Details are available on the Human Resources/Benefits webpage.

During open enrollment, eligible employees will have the opportunity to anonymously donate vacation time in increments of four (4) hours to the vacation donation bank. The program requires donors to maintain a minimum vacation balance of 80 hours after the donation. Once the session closes on Monday, September 26, all donated hours will be held in the donated vacation bank for use by eligible employees who are approved to become beneficiaries of the program.

To participate, fill out a Request to Donate Vacation form via the Vacation Donation Program application, located here: https://mis.jlab.org/mis/apps/hr/vacationDonation/

More program details are available on the Human Resources/Benefits website at, under Employee Assistance Program: https://www.jlab.org/div_dept/admin/HR/vacationDonation.html

Since the inception of this program in 2011, we have been able to provide approximately 800 total hours of donated Vacation time to very grateful employees. Thank you all for your generous support!

Please direct all questions pertaining to this offering to Treva Ferguson at ext. 7291.
