Incentive Leave Policy

Incentive leave may be used as a recruitment tool to assist in the employment of qualified individuals who are middle or late career applicants employed outside of State government and who are interested in accepting employment with the State of North Carolina.

An agency may award incentive leave to a middle or late career applicant who is newly appointed to a position that the agency has identified as critical to the agency mission and for which the agency has documented recruitment difficulty attracting qualified applicants, or who is newly appointed to an executive or middle management position.
