The special open enrollment period for the new Catastrophic Sick Leave Bank (CSLB) Program has been extended to Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. 

As announced previously, the CSLB enables eligible employees with five years of full-time continuous CUNY service to donate Sick Leave and/or Annual Leave, and eligible employees with less than five years of service to donate Annual Leave, each Program Year.  Donating time to the Catastrophic Sick Leave Bank 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 unpaid status due to a catastrophic illness. Annual participation will automatically continue unless an employee elects to withdraw from the program or becomes ineligible to participate.  

The effective date for submitting an application to Receive Sick Leave remains Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.  CSLB applications are available online.
