Access To Leave Bank. An employee becomes eligible for the State Employees’ Leave Bank 90 days following the initial donation to the bank. Membership in the State Employees’ Leave Bank is for two years, unless the leave in the bank is exhausted, at which time all employees will be notified and given the option of rejoining by donating an additional day. In these cases, employees who had served the 90-day waiting period for eligibility will not be required to serve an additional waiting period. Eligibility for use of leave from the bank will be determined in accordance with existing policy (COMAR).
