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?
Management employees earn annual leave on a biweekly basis as a percentage of regular hours paid.

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.
