Emergency Leave Transfer Program

Many parts of the United States must occasionally cope with severe weather conditions or other emergency situations, frequently with little warning. Such emergencies are often dangerous and extremely disruptive for those who live in the affected communities. Various Human Resources (HR) flexibilities are available to assist Federal employees affected by severe weather conditions and their aftermath or other emergency situations.

The emergency leave transfer program permits Federal employees to transfer their unused annual leave to other Federal employees adversely affected by a major disaster or emergency, as declared by the President. This program provides Federal employees with a special opportunity to help their fellow workers in times of need.
