The CSU Catastrophic Leave Donation Program allows employees to voluntarily donate sick and/or vacation leave credits to employees that are totally incapacitated due to a catastrophic illness or injury, and have exhausted all leave credits, including any sick, vacation, personal holiday or CTO credits. Family illnesses that are deemed catastrophic, requiring an employee to be absent to care for an immediate family member, are also eligible for the CSU Catastrophic Leave Donation Program.

Depending on the employee category, an employee who accrues vacation or sick leave credits, may voluntarily donate a certain number of accrued hours to another employee deemed eligible for catastrophic leave. The amount of hours that can be donated during a fiscal year vary per employee category.

Catastrophic leave donations are not transferable between campuses. An employee can donate to or receive credits from employees at his/her respective campus only.

The total amount of leave credits donated and used may not exceed an amount sufficient to ensure the continuance of the employee's regular monthly rate of compensation, for a period of up to three months. Donated leave credits may also be used to supplement Industrial Disability Leave (IDL), Nonindustrial Disability Insurance (NDI) or Temporary Disability (TD) payments upon the application for these benefits(s) by an eligible employee. An employee cannot receive Catastrophic Leave in lieu of benefits through a disability program.
