Vacation/Personal Holiday Carryover Extended
Due to the disruptive effect of COVID-19 on employee’s schedules, an interim policy was approved that allows all leave eligible Faculty, Academic Staff and Limited Appointees to extend the carryover of unused vacation from fiscal year 2019 (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019) for one additional year. Unused Personal Holiday from fiscal year 2020 (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020) may also be carried forward.
All Vacation and Personal Holiday hours carried over under this temporary extension must be used by June 30, 2021. You are encouraged to plan ahead and schedule your paid leave in advance to avoid losing any vacation and/or personal holiday hours.
Employees who extend vacation and/or personal holiday carry over are still required to submit monthly leave reports.
