PS-12, Revision: 7, Effective: November 8, 2004
Excerpt from PS-12:
Annual Leave is leave with pay granted an employee for the purpose of rehabilitation, restoration, and maintenance of work efficiency, Family and Medical Leave (FMLA), or the transaction of any personal affairs.
Leave accrual for academic and professional employees on fiscal pay basis begins with the paid appointment or continuation at greater than 50% effort that extends employment beyond 180 days.
*Note: Contingent employees do not accrue annual leave.
Classified employees begin accruing leave from their first day of appointment on a regular tour of duty.
*Note: Classified employees do not accrue leave while serving on a restricted appointment or on intermittent appointment.
Annual leave is allotted on two schedules. Each new eligible academic and professional employee shall make a choice between Annual Leave Accrual Schedule I and Annual Leave Accrual Schedule II.
- The choice must be made, in writing , within 30 days of appointment and is irrevocable.
- Employees who are appointed for less than full-time but who are eligible to earn leave shall accrue leave in proportion to their percentage of full-time.
