Shared Leave

City of Tacoma Employee Leave Sharing Program

The Shared Leave Program was originally authorized by the Tacoma City Council in 1999 (Tacoma Municipal Code 1.12.245) to establish a program as a continuing benefit for City of Tacoma employees; to provide an opportunity for City employees to come to the aid of fellow City employees who suffer from a severe, extraordinary, or life-threatening illness or injury that prevents the individual from working.
