Reservist Leave Bank Program Law and Legal Definition

The Reservist Leave Bank Program (“Program”) is a federal initiative allowing a federal employee to contribute unused accrued annual leave to a leave bank established by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Under this Program, only a reservist is entitled for such leave. A reservist is an eligible returnee who has been a member of the armed forces of the U.S. serving on active duty during the Persian Gulf War and has returned to civilian employment with their agencies. This Program prohibits an employee who directly or indirectly intimidates, threatens, or coerces any other employee with respect to contributing, or not contributing, annual leave.[5 CFR 630.1306]
