Vacation Donation Program

Vacation Donation Program

We are pleased to offer another open enrollment session for the Vacation Donation Program. As the end of the year approaches there have been several inquiries by employees who are considering donating leave that might otherwise be forfeited. The enrollment session begins today, Monday, December 8 and will be offered through Friday, December 12, 2014 at 5:00PM , via the on-line system.

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 their available sick and vacation leave and would otherwise be subject to a severe loss of income aside from this program. Other eligibility criteria must be met and details are available on the Human Resources/Benefits webpage.

During open enrollment, eligible employees will have the opportunity to anonymously donate vacation time in four (4) hour increments 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 Friday, December 12, 2014, all donated hours will be held in the donated vacation bank for use when an eligible employee applies and is approved to become a beneficiary of the program.

Employees can donate vacation leave via the JLab Insight page, Human Resources/Benefits webpage, or directly at:
