The DHS policy guidance in Management Directive 254-01, Volunteer Community Service, applies and permits employees who participate in volunteer activities directly related to the DHS mission to receive up to 40 hours of administrative leave per leave year for volunteer community service. Employees who wish to use administrative leave must not have previously exhausted the 40 hours per year administrative leave maximum for volunteer community service. If the 40 hours per year maximum has been exhausted, employees must request annual leave, leave without pay, credit hours (under a flexible work schedule), or compensatory time off, to be eligible to participate in volunteer community service activities.
