Sandy Relief Leave Bank

Priority: Informational

Hurricane Sandy had a catastrophic impact upon many employees of The City University of New York. We recognize that there may be employees who need to take annual leave in order to attend to personal circumstances, but who may not have sufficient annual leave to do so.

The University has created a temporary program, limited to dealing with the effects of Hurricane Sandy, known as the "The City University of New York Hurricane Sandy Emergency Relief Annual Leave Bank Program" (Annual Leave Bank). Under this program, each college creates a pool of annual leave, voluntarily donated by individuals at the campus who are employed full-time on an annual salary basis, for use as annual leave by eligible full-time or part-time/hourly employees. Eligible recipients may receive up to five days (5) days of paid annual leave from the Annual Leave Bank for use during the period from November 1, 2012 through February 28, 2013.

Please note that teaching faculty will not be able to participate in the program as either donors or recipients. The Annual Leave Bank will be administered by each college's Office of Human Resources, including the Central Office.

Employees who are interested in participating in the program either as donors or recipients should click on this link to access the forms and program requirements.

Thank you.
Office of Human Resources
