How to apply for and donate to Emergency Leave Program
King County is working hard to address the challenges that have arisen from the coronavirus, and is providing new ways to support employees. Some employees are impacted more than others, and will exhaust their paid leave while recovering their health or caring for others. With this in mind, the Emergency Leave Donation Program was developed so that employees who have been affected by COVID-19 can request donated leave.
Employees interested in supporting colleagues affected by COVID-19 can donate accrued sick and vacation leave in two different ways:
- Using PeopleSoft to make donations. Learn how by viewing this PeopleSoft Emergency Leave Donation guide (SharePoint), or viewing this short video (also below) from the King County Business Resource Center to help with PeopleSoft entries.
- Completing the Emergency Leave Donation Form, which is a fillable PDF and can be submitted electronically without printing. The completed PDF form can be emailed to EmergencyDonation@kingcounty.gov.
Employees who need leave due to a COVID-19 related absence can request donated leave from the program using the Emergency Leave Request Form. This fillable PDF form can also be completed on a computer and emailed, without needing to be printed. The completed PDF form can be emailed to EmergencyDonation@kingcounty.gov.
