Subject: Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts

In order to support relief efforts for the devastation caused by the recent earthquake in Haiti, Rutgers will once again put into place a temporary policy and process to allow Red Cross Certified Disaster Service Volunteers the ability to support relief efforts.

Those employees who are Red Cross Certified Disaster Service Volunteers are eligible for one ten (10) day paid leave of absence and one ten (10) day unpaid leave of absence upon the request of the American Red Cross and the approval of their employing department.

Process details are available on the University Human Resources website. If you have any questions, please contact Valerie Hunter at 732-932-3020, ext. 4073.
