The purpose of shared leave is to permit city employees, at no additional cost to any city fund other than the administrative costs of administering the program, to come to the aid of a fellow city employee who has exhausted all paid leave benefits and is:

A. Suffering from or has an immediate family member, as defined by state law per RCW 50A.05.010, that is suffering from an extraordinary or severe illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition.

B. A victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.

C. Called to actively serve in the United States Uniformed Services.

D. Serving as an approved emergency worker in a declared national or state emergency.

The use of shared leave will not significantly increase the cost of any fund, except for those costs which would otherwise be incurred in the administration of this program, or which would otherwise be incurred by the employee’s department. (Ord. 3874-22 § 1, 2022; Ord. 3136-09 § 1(A), 2009.)
