The Good Part of Federal Employment

A coworker had a heart attack and has been out for a while. It appears unlikely she will be returning to work any time soon. The Federal government allows workers to transfer sick time to those in need. I started the drive and gave up 40 hours.

The move postpones her placement on disability by a week. Hopefully some of the workers will kick in a few days and we can stall this for a bit longer.

That's a good policy!

And, of course, you, Beak, stepped up.

It is a good thing, and good on you, Beaker!
But we expect nothing less...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

we had catastrophic time banks in cali service - if not for that, i'd've had to be on disability when i went into labor with zgirl at five months - they gave me about seven months vacation - of course i went back to work five weeks after having her and never forgot what those wonderful people gave to me so tried to reciprocate whenever possible - although we had to give vacation time - it allowed the other person to collect a full paycheck.
