Vacation

Regular, benefits-eligible employees accrue vacation based on hours paid up to a maximum of 22 working days per year. Vacation does not accrue during unpaid time off.

Full-time employees hired or transferred into a benefits-eligible position on or before June 30, 2008 cannot begin a fiscal year with a vacation balance greater than 22 days. Full-time employees hired or transferred into a benefits-eligible position on or after July 1, 2008 cannot maintain an accrual balance greater than 22 vacation days at any one time.

Part-time employees cannot carry a balance greater than their maximum accrual rate with the exception of those employees who transition from full-time to part-time status and those employees hired on or before June 30, 2008. Part-time employees hired or transferred into a benefits-eligible position on or before June 30, 2008 cannot begin a fiscal year with a vacation balance greater than their maximum annual accrual.

Vacation may be taken after the 6-month orientation period concludes. The scheduling of vacation time requires the prior approval of the supervisor. Schools and departments may have additional requirements. Partial days of vacation may be granted at the discretion of the supervisor.

An employee with six (6) or more months of continuous regular service whose employment is terminated for any reason will be paid for accrued unused vacation time up to the maximum accrual (22 days for full-time employees). Terminating employees may not use vacation in lieu of providing notice of their intention to resign.
