VA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. This benefits system traces its roots back to 1636, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony were at war with the Pequot Indians. The Pilgrims passed a law which stated that disabled soldiers would be supported by the colony. The establishment of the Veterans Administration came in 1930 when Congress authorized the President to "consolidate and coordinate Government activities affecting war veterans."

This forum also includes the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

Perhaps you are working for the VA or interested in working for the VA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the VA.

I heard that it was possible for one employee just to give some of their accrued leave and or sick time to another employee. I am NOT speaking of the donated leave program for those on FMLA or for a medical emergency. . Anyone heard of this. Thanks

I am not familiar with VA policies, but I have never heard of leave donation outside of the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program (VLTP), Voluntary Leave Bank Program, or due to major disasters or emergencies declared by the President. In all of those situations, employees may donate only annual leave; sick leave cannot be donated. I am not aware of any program that allows employees to simply give annual leave to a co-worker (or a federal employee in another agency) without some type of medical need (self or family member) or based on a disaster or emergency. I do not think that would be permissible under current federal law, but perhaps others have more information. I think allowing that type of leave transfer would require a new or revised statute.

5 U.S. Code CHAPTER 63—LEAVE
SUBCHAPTER III—VOLUNTARY TRANSFERS OF LEAVE (§§ 6331 – 6340)
SUBCHAPTER IV—VOLUNTARY LEAVE BANK PROGRAM (§§ 6361 – 6373)
SUBCHAPTER VI—LEAVE TRANSFER IN DISASTERS AND EMERGENCIES (§ 6391)
