2010 Nashville Flood Information

Disaster Pay Benefit Verification Request Form

Those employees whose residences were destroyed or otherwise rendered uninhabitable need time to arrange temporary accommodation and reestablish their lives. This special paid leave measure is another element in the university and medical center’s broad efforts to assist recovery for employees affected by the flood.

  • All full-time, part-time and term employees (faculty, staff and trainees) whose residences were destroyed or otherwise rendered uninhabitable by the flood are eligible for up to two weeks of paid leave.
  • To lessen any disruption to normal operations, scheduling of time off is as usual subject to manager approval. This paid leave may be applied retroactively (as far back as 7 a.m., May 1); all leave must be claimed by Oct. 31, 2010.
  • Total hours of leave available under this special measure are based on how many hours an employee works in a normal week; for example, those who normally work 20 hours per week will be eligible for up to 40 hours of leave, while those who normally work 40 hours per week will be eligible for up to 80 hours of leave.
  • This paid leave measure only applies to employees whose homes were destroyed or rendered uninhabitable by the flood. Employees who have missed work due to disruptions to roads and bus lines or to other flood-related causes must use accrued leave for those missed days.
  • Staff will record their time away related to flood circumstances using pay code “DPB” (Disaster Pay Benefit). On the Kronos System, staff will report flood related time away to timekeepers who will use the same code (DPB) in the Kronos system to document flood related absences from work.
