The purpose of the shared leave program is to allow Seattle College District employees who accrue annual leave, and employees who do not accrue annual leave but do accrue sick leave, to donate leave to other Seattle College District employees. The employee who receives shared leave must have an extraordinary or severe illness or injury which prevents the individual from working, and which causes considerable economic and emotional distress to the employee. The District may authorize shared leave for employees who have exhausted accrued leave and are absent due to emergency situations such as communicable disease epidemics. Donated annual/sick leave becomes shared leave which may be used in accordance with the regulations governing sick leave.
