2018

A popular workplace benefit offered by some employers is an employee leave-sharing program.

While altruistic and beneficial for improving workplace morale, employee leave-sharing programs can be complicated from an administrative perspective. This FAQ is intended to help Community Action Agencies understand the tax law and federal grant law requirements that apply to leave-sharing programs and to provide tips for administering such programs.
