Take Some Leave and Enjoy the Remaining Days of Summer
Working through our current unusual circumstances require that we all make certain adjustments in our lives. One of these adjustments is to manage the boundaries between work time and personal time more intentionally when working from home. It is important that we all take time to step away from work, rejuvenate, and attend to our personal and family needs and interests. We encourage all employees to use their available annual leave/recess days and to communicate and work with their supervisors to ensure that they can do so. Take some time to enjoy this summer!
Annual Leave Carryover Deadline: December 23, 2020
With four months left in the calendar year, be sure to plan your annual leave use for meeting the maximum allowable carryover deadline of December 23, 2020. Staff and administrators will lose any unused leave in excess of the carryover limit if not used by December 23. The annual leave carryover limit is based on the employee's annual accrual rate of leave according to length of service, as seen below:
- Less than three years of service: 120 hours carry-over
- Three years, but less than 15 years of service: 160 hours carryover
- 15 years or more service: 208 hours carryover
For part-time employees, the amount of leave carryover is prorated according to the proportion that the work week is to a 40-hour work week.
