Legacy employees are noted for their generosity and support of their co-workers. The Gifted Paid Leave (GPL) program was developed in response to employees' requests to be able to help co-workers who have an unexpected need for additional time off.
Regular full-time and part-time Legacy employees earn Annual Paid Leave (APL) for their use for vacations, a day off here and there, holidays or in case they get sick. (There are some exceptions for union employees - check your contract.) New full-time employees earn 22 APL days a year. The longer you work for Legacy, the more APL you are entitled to earn, up to 38 days a year.
The Gifted Paid Leave (GPL) program allows eligible employees to donate APL to another Legacy employee who is in a regular full- or part-time position. Under this program, if one of your co-workers has a family emergency or is diagnosed with a condition that requires time off work for treatment, you are able to voluntarily donate some of your APL as a gift to help them through a difficult time. The GPL application form is available in the HR forms areas at Legacy locations.
