  • State Workers Would Be Able To Donate Sick Leave To Colleagues In Medical Emergencies

SANTA FE – The New Mexico House of Representatives passed legislation Saturday that would allow state workers to donate sick and annual leave to their colleagues in a medical emergency.

HB403, sponsored by Rep. Conrad James, passed by a unanimous 65-0 vote

“This legislation takes extra measures to protect our state workers,” James said. “I am proud that the House took these steps to help state employees in their hour of need.”

All sick-leave donations must remain within a department or division. In addition, a worker cannot donate his or her leave without having a minimum amount of sick leave.
