Catastrophic Sick Leave Bank Program (CSLB) Implementation

The CSLB enables eligible employees with five (5) years of full-time continuous CUNY service to donate sick leave and/or annual leave to the CSLB, and eligible employees with less than five (5) years of service to donate annual leave each Program Year. Donating time to the CSLB each Program Year allows an eligible employee to receive up to 90 days from the Bank in any Program Year should the employee be on an unpaid status due to a catastrophic illness.

The special open enrollment period will run from November 14, 2013 through December 13, 2013. Participation will automatically continue each year unless the employee elects to withdraw from the Program or is no longer eligible to participate. For future years, the open enrollment period will be held each October with the applicable number of days to be deducted from the employee's time and leave record the following month.
