Catastrophic and Medical Leave Requests

  • Article Info

Hi my name is Sharon and I work in the Police Department. Unfortunately, I have to undergo a serious back surgery. I will not have enough leave hours on the books to cover both the surgery and recuperation time. I would greatly appreciate any hours that you would be able to donate on my behalf. Thank you so much in advance for your donations and support.

My name is Danisha Jackett & I am asking for your assistance. I am 9 months along in my pregnancy & due to deliver my baby (yay!) on August 23, 2015. The City policy allows up to 480 hours unpaid leave within 1 year. Though they will hold your job & continue benefits, the time is unpaid. I have used a portion for doctor’s appointments & will not have enough paid leave to cover this absence. I am asking for your help by donating A/L time to enjoy the first moment’s home with my family. Anything you can do to help is appreciated!
