In response to the impact of Superstorm Sandy on many of its employees, CUNY has announced a policy permitting each college to set up an emergency Annual Leave Bank to which full-time salaried CUNY employees (both instructional and classified staff) who accrue annual leave (not full-time teaching or counseling faculty who have a designated annual leave period) can donate up to 5 days of their accrued annual leave.
Full-time and part-time/hourly CUNY employees who do not have sufficient paid leave to permit them to stay on payroll and deal with emergency conditions resulting from Hurricane Sandy are eligible to apply for up to 5 days of paid leave from this emergency Annual Leave Bank, including employees in adjunct and CET titles who do not normally accrue annual leave. Leave from this Annual Leave Bank can be used from November 1, 2012, through February 28, 2013.
Go to your HR Office or to the appropriate CUNY web page for more details and for forms to donate or to apply for leave.
