Leave Buy Back

If your Workers’ Compensation claim was approved and you used annual and/or sick leave during periods of disability due to your injury or illness (and you have submitted proper medical documentation which agrees with your leave dates), then you may be eligible to have your leave recredited to your account via a leave buy back. This will change the leave used to Leave Without Pay and the Annual and/or Sick leave will be available for your use again. You may request to do a “leave buy back" by contacting the NIH Workers’ Compensation Program in the Leave, Payroll & Workforce Support Branch (OHR/LPW).
