It's more common than you think! It's a widely acccepted practice for people who have been with one employer for a long time. We are asked from time to time to donate a percentage of our annual leave time to a "leave bank" for employees that have catastrophic illnesses or injuries that exhaust their leave time and are forced to go off payroll. It is a tremendous help to those that really need and deserve it.

The flip side of that coin is, unfortunately, some of that leave ends up benefiting individuals that don't deserve it and are "playing the system". And.. while that's happening, we have positions that we can't fill and creates a hardship for the unit.
