Under the Kansas State Donor Program, all classified and unclassified benefits eligible employees may receive paid leave in accordance with the following criteria:
Donor Leave will not count as time worked for FLSA purposes. All Donor Leave will be paid at the regular rate. Donor Leave will only be paid for leave taken during regularly scheduled work hours. An employee does not have to exhaust accrued vacation leave, sick leave, or compensatory time before being eligible to receive donor leave. Donor leave only applies to the active employee and may not be used to care for family members who are donors. Do not record leave for state sponsored blood drives. This time will not count against the 1.5 hours allowed every 4 months under the Donor Leave program. Approved Donor Leave will count toward leave accrual.
Requesting Donor Leave
To request Donor Leave, complete a Donor Leave Request Form and give to your supervisor. Your supervisor should keep the Donor Leave Request Form in your department. Do not send the form to HRS or attach to the PSU Timesheet.
