Staff members begin earning vacation on their first day in pay status. Vacation accrues for all hours in pay status. Vacation usage is not permitted in excess of the staff member's current vacation balance.
Staff members who are regularly employed for 20 or more hours but less than 40 hours per week on a continuing basis will accrue vacation and personal holidays on a pro rata basis. Questions should be referred to Payroll, 3-6425.
Staff members receive eleven (11) holidays per year. Two of these are "personal holidays" and are included in the vacation accrual.
Holidays falling within the period of a paid vacation are paid as holidays and are not charged to the staff member's vacation. This does not apply to the vacation payout.
Following is the schedule for vacation accrual:
|Years of Service
||Monthly Vacation Accrual-Hours
Monthly Personal Holiday Accrual-Hours
Maximum accrual is twice the annual accrual. If sick leave is being converted to vacation the maximum accrual is increased by 12 days. When the maximum accrual limit is reached no further time will accrue until some vacation is used.
