Annual leave is to be used for absences for vacation purposes. Annual leave must be scheduled in advance and shall be granted for periods of time requested by the employee subject to management's responsibility to maintain efficient operations.
Faculty members who are appointed to 12-month positions earn paid annual leave on a biweekly basis as a percentage of regular hours paid. Faculty members who are appointed to nine-month academic year appointments do not earn annual/vacation leave.
The percentage of annual hours earned per biweekly pay depends on the faculty member's leave service credit. Annual leave service credit is earned for each month in which the faculty member is in an active pay status ten or more working days.
