TBR Policy Disaster Relief Service Leave

It is the policy of Northeast State Community College to allow disaster service leave in accordance with TCA §8-50-810. A regular employee who is a certified disaster service volunteer of the American Red Cross may be granted leave with pay for up to fifteen (15) work days each calendar year to participate in specialized disaster relief services for the American Red Cross. The request for the employee’s services must come from the American Red Cross and is subject to approval by the employee’s supervisor. The institution/technology center/central office may require the employee to provide verification of service following the disaster period.

Employees who are currently certified as a disaster relief volunteer must register with the office of Human Resources immediately. New employees who are certified with the American Red Cross at the time of hire must register with the office of Human Resources during the orientation process. Employees who become certified after employment must register with the office of Human Resources within 30 days of certification.
