Emergency Leave Donation
The City offers an Emergency Leave Donation program that allowed all Regular, Limited Duration, and Recreation Activity employees to donate accrued leave to the City’s COVID-19 Leave Donation Program for use by other eligible employees.
While we have currently paused accepting donations to the bank, eligible employees may still request access to donated leave using the donation request form below.
Effective 01/30/22, City of Eugene Temporary employees who miss time they were scheduled to work due to COVID-19, will be eligible for up to 40 hours of donated leave if they have exhausted their available Oregon Sick Time Leave. This provision is not available for employees who are employed through Galt, Quantum, or other contracting agencies.

The City of Eugene’s Leave Donation Program provides paid time off for regular employees in the event of a catastrophic medical condition of the employee or their family member that would otherwise result in unpaid leave. It may help to bridge the gap between an employee’s own exhausted paid leave and long term disability. Employees applying to receive leave donations must meet eligibility requirements and exhaust their own leave accruals. Donating employees can choose to donate accrued vacation or shift holiday time to help keep the receiving employee whole with regards to pay and benefits.
The eligibility criteria is listed Administrative Policy Manual (APM), and in Union contracts and agreements. Leave donation requests and donor forms must be approved by the Employee Resource Center Benefits Program to ensure they meet eligibility criteria.
Employees should contact their supervisor and/or the ERC Services Benefits Program if they would like to apply for Leave Donations or if they have questions about the Leave Donation Program.
This policy sunset on 4/14/21. Unused leave donations will be returned to donating employees. Contact Benefits Staff if you have questions about the return process.
