Everyone needs time off occasionally to rest and recharge. It is necessary for you
to become familiar with your departmental protocols for requesting leave. It is your
responsibility to communicate and ensure that this time away
is approved by your manager/time approver.
PAID ANNUAL LEAVE
A benefits-eligible, twelve month employee is eligible for paid annual leave after being active for 15 days within a month. Leave accruals are pro-rated based on full time equivalency (FTE).
For monthly employees, the accruals are granted on the last day of the month but are available for use beginning the first of the following month.
For biweekly employees, leave accruals are granted during the pay period that contains the last day of the month but are available for use at any point within that pay period.
There is a 360 hour/45 day cap on annual leave. Any amount of annual leave that exceeds
360 hours on December 31
will be lost. More information about leave accural can be found here:
