Administering Employee Leave-Sharing Programs

2018

A popular workplace benefit offered by some employers is an employee leave-sharing program. These programs allow employees to donate accrued, paid leave to a general pool to be used by fellow employees who have exhausted all paid leave available to them but need additional leave. While altruistic and beneficial for improving workplace morale, employee leave-sharing programs can be complicated from an administrative perspective. This FAQ is intended to help Community Action Agencies understand the tax law and federal grant law requirements that apply to leave-sharing programs and to provide tips for administering such programs.
