ANNUAL LEAVE

 

 

Annual leave shall be earned by each active employee who has a regular twelve (12) month service assignment (260 days), except that no employee shall earn annual leave if any part of their twelve (12) month employment was outside their original field of service.

 

The earning of such leave shall be based on the following:

 

1.

Less than three (3) years of service in a twelve (12) month employment (.83) of a day or any fraction thereof for each completed month of service.  (10 days annually)

 

2.

Three (3) years but less than ten (10) years of service in a twelve (12) month employment - one (1) day or any fraction thereof for each completed month of service.  (12 days annually)

 

3.

Ten (10) or more years of service in a twelve (12) month employment one and one-fourth (13 ) days or any fraction thereof for each completed month of service.  (15 days annually)

 

Accrued unused annual leave earned by an employee shall be capped at a maximum of thirty (30) days.

 

The minimum charge to annual leave records shall not be less than one-half day.

 

Non-active employees on any other type of leave shall not earn annual leave.

 

Any unused annual leave at the time of separation (termination, resignation, retirement, entrance into DROP, or death) shall be paid to the employee or his/her heirs on or before the next regular payday for the pay cycle during which the employee was working at the time of separation, or no later than fifteen (15) days following the date of separation, whichever occurs first at the employee's daily rate of pay.

 

Annual leave must be applied for by the employee at least five (5) working days prior to use of such leave to the Superintendent or his/her designee.  This time requirement may be waived in extenuating circumstances.  This scheduling of such leave must be in the best interest of the system.

 

The provisions of this policy shall become effective July 1, 2001.
