Shared Sick Leave Program

Did you know employees may voluntarily donate unused sick leave to the Georgia Tech Shared Leave Pool? Open Enrollment, October 25 through November 5, is your opportunity to make a donation to the Share Sick Leave Pool for calendar year 2022.   

For more information about eligibility and how the program works, visit hr.gatech.edu/shared-sick-leave

If you wish to join the shared sick leave pool, you must meet the following criteria to be eligible: 

  • Completion of your provisional employment period 
  • First time participants must donate a minimum of 8 hours sick leave during open enrollment (October 25 – November 5) AND  
  •  Have a minimum 48 hours remaining in your sick leave balance on January 1, 2022, in order to maintain the required 40-hour sick leave balance after your donation is processed in January.  
Already a member?

If you are already a member of the Shared Sick Leave pool this is a reminder that although you are not required to donate additional sick leave to remain in the pool, you may donate up to 80 sick leave hours during the upcoming open enrollment period and retain a minimum of 48-hour sick leave balance on January 1, 2022.  If you plan on retiring next year, now is the time to donate the sick leave you will not use, as you are not able to at the time of retirement, only during open enrollment.
