Leave Bank Program
The State Employees' Leave Bank is a program that allows employees in the State Personnel Management System, as well as employees in independent personnel systems who elect to participate, to receive leave for a serious and prolonged medical condition. Employees who wish to join must donate at least 8 hours of unused annual, personal or sick leave (or a combination of the three) to become eligible members for two years. Donating employees who use sick leave to join the Bank must retain a sick leave balance of at least 240 hours after the donation.
