Regular support staff and full-time officers accrue vacation allowance on a fiscal year basis -- from July 1 through June 30th and, with supervisory approval, may use the vacation as it is earned. However, the total allowance earned must be used by June 30 of the year following accrual. It may not accumulate nor may the employee receive pay in lieu of unused vacation except upon termination and then only for earned unused vacation days.
Changes in an employee’s accrual rate take effect the fiscal year following the employee’s anniversary date. For instance, if the employee’s anniversary date is February 1, the new accrual rate goes into effect in the new fiscal year starting July 1.
For example: for Officers who have reached their 20th anniversary with the University, the higher vacation accrual rate takes effect at the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1) following that anniversary date. If the anniversary date falls on July 1, the higher accrual rate is effective on that date.
Vacation pay will be based upon the employee's current base salary.
Employees transferring to a new department may carry a maximum of one year of vacation accrual.
