UCSF has developed an Emergency Catastrophic Leave Donation Bank to support faculty, non-faculty academics and staff employees across all of UCSF that are unable to work due to COVID-19 impacts. Eligibility to receive donations requires exhaustion of:

  • Vacation
  • Sick leave
  • Extended illness leave
  • Compensatory Time Off
  • COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave

Eligible donors may elect to donate to the temporary emergency bank for staff affected by COVID or they may donate to a specific person under the existing VCLSP program. The maximum donation an employee can make to these two programs is forty (40) hours in a twelve-month calendar period. Eligible recipient employees can receive up to 16 hours of Emergency Catastrophic Leave. Please review the UCSF COVID-19 Emergency Voluntary Catastrophic Leave Sharing Program Guidelines for all the details on how to donate or initiate a request for Emergency Catastrophic Leave. If you have questions, please contact your HR Generalist.
