UCLA Campus Catastrophic Leave Program

President Yudof issued a new comprehensive policy on “Absence from Work,” consolidating various staff personnel policies related to leaves. The policy, effective June 1, 2010, includes revised language for compliance with legal requirements and provides certain enhanced provisions.
The guidelines in Related Information for the UCLA Campus Catastrophic Leave Program have been updated to facilitate compliance with the addition of the catastrophic leave provisions outlined in Section B. 10 – Catastrophic Leave Donation Program.

The most significant change includes the following additional circumstances for eligibility:

  • To deal with the death of a family member; and
  • To address a catastrophic casualty loss suffered due to a terrorist attack, fire, or natural disaster. 

The Catastrophic Leave Application and donor forms have also been updated and are available in Related Information.
