Dumke Conference Center at 401 Golden Shore, Long Beach, California 90802-4210 commencing at 9:00 a.m. on March 19, 2019, or as soon thereafter as the business of the Board will permit.

INFORMATIVE DIGEST  

The California State University Catastrophic Leave Donation Program (Sections 42930, 42931, 42932, and 42933 of Article 4.2, Subchapter 7, Chapter 1, Division 5 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations) which addresses the catastrophic leave donation program is updated to reflect changes to include catastrophic leave for natural disasters/states of emergency, include the definition of catastrophic leave for natural disasters/states of emergency, update the participation and eligibility requirements and update the donation criteria. This revision is to expand the current catastrophic leave donation program to include Catastrophic Leave for a Natural Disaster/State of Emergency declared by the Governor. This benefit would be available to an employee who faces financial hardship because the employee has exhausted all accrued personal holiday credits and compensating time off, and has a balance of forty (40) hours or less in each accrued vacation credits and accrued sick leave credits, and is unable to work due to the effect of a natural disaster on the employee's principal residence. Article 4.2 is also revised to include that the president of each campus, subject to the approval of the Chancellor, has the authority to make exceptions to the prescribed policy for the purpose of responding to other catastrophic occurrences of comparable impact, and/or to expand the benefits of the prescribed policy when compelling and unusual circumstances exist. 

COST TO STATE AND LOCAL AGENCIES AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS  

The adoption of the proposed amendment will not impose a cost or savings on any state agency; will not impose a cost or savings on any local agency or school district that is required to be reimbursed under Section 17561 of the Government Code; will not result in any nondiscretionary cost or savings to local agencies; will not result in any cost or savings in federal funding to the state; and will not impose a mandate on local agencies or school districts. 

AUTHORITY  

The regulations are being amended pursuant to Sections 89030, 89030.1 and 89500, Education Code.

REFERENCE  

Education Code Sections 89030, 89030.1 and 89500.
