Why would I use Annual Leave?
Annual leave is to be used for absences for vacation purposes. Annual leave shall be granted subject to management’s responsibility to maintain efficient operations. The leave calendar year is defined as the first full pay period in January through the pay period that includes December 31.
How is annual leave earned/accrued?
Effective with the beginning of the 2017 leave calendar year, employees who have over one year of service from their most recent date of hire and who use no sick leave (other than sick leave used for bereavement leave) in an entire one-half leave calendar year shall earn
an additional 3.75 or 4.0 hours of annual leave.
How do I request and use annual leave?
Requests are made through Employee Self-Service (ESS).
What happens if I don’t use all of my annual leave in the same calendar year?
What happens to my unused annual leave if I end employment or retire?
Employees who retire, resign, or otherwise separate from the university are entitled to receive a payout of unused annual leave. The payout is based on the number of days available on the last day of employment and the employee’s salary at the time of separation.
