Find out about UC San Diego's Catastrophic Leave Donation Program.
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.
