NSWC Corona employees are entitled to various types of leave, including annual leave, sick leave, paid holidays, and compensatory time.
Annual Leave and Sick Leave
With each bi-weekly pay period, employees accrue annual leave and sick leave. The number of annual leave hours earned depends on the employee’s length of Federal Service, as shown below:
Length of Service
Annual Leave Accrual Rate
Less than 3 years
4 hours (13 days a year)
3 to 15 years
6 hours (20 days a year)
15 years or more
8 hours (26 days a year)
Employees earn four (4) hours of sick leave each pay period, regardless of service time.
In addition to annual and sick leave, the NSWC Corona workforce receives the following eleven (11) paid holidays:

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday
Annual leave, sick leave, and regular compensatory time earned at another Federal agency will typically transfer with you to NSWC Corona However, travel compensatory time and credit hours do not transfer.
At NSWC Corona, employees who deal with certified medical emergencies and have exhausted all their paid leave can apply to receive leave donations from other Federal employees through our Voluntary Leave Transfer Program. This program also allows employees to submit donations of annual leave directly to program participants.
