The Catastrophic Leave Donation Program allows the continuation of salary and benefits for an eligible employee who has exhausted all paid leave due to:
- a catastrophic illness or injury (applied to disability waiting period)
- caring for a catastrophically ill or injured family or household member
- the death of a family or household member
- a catastrophic casualty loss suffered due to a terrorist attack, fire or natural disaster
The program relies on the donation of vacation leave by the employee's colleagues.
