Re: Summary of Policies and Regulations Relating to Faculty, Administrative, and Professional Staff Vacations


Vacation is granted by Purdue University to its staff members for the purpose of releasing them temporarily from their day-to-day duties and responsibilities. Time thus spent in rest and relaxation benefits both the University and the individual and the accrual of vacation for any other purpose is strongly discouraged.

Faculty, Administrative and Professional

  1. Academic-Year Staff

    Members of the faculty and the administrative and professional staff employed on an academic-year basis are in vacation status during the periods of the academic year when classes are not in session, except for the seven calendar day period prior to the first day of classes each semester and the period between the end of classes and the final date for submitting grade reports.

  2. Fiscal-Year Staff

    Members of the faculty and administrative and professional staff employed on a fiscal-year basis are granted vacation as follows:

    1. Fiscal-year staff classified as faculty are granted a maximum vacation allowance of twenty-two (22) working days each completed fiscal year of service.

    2. Fiscal-year staff classified as administrative or professional are granted vacation as follows:

      1. Staff members classified as management or professional are granted a maximum vacation allowance of twenty-two (22) working days each completed fiscal year of service.

      2. Staff members classified as administrative and supervisory and professional assistant are granted a vacation allowance of ten (10) working days per year after completion of the first year of service; fifteen (15) working days per year after completion of the second year of service; and twenty-two (22) working days per year after completion of the third year of service, and thereafter.

      3. Staff members classified as operations assistant or technical assistant are granted a vacation allowance of ten (10) working days per year after completion of the first year of service; fifteen (15) working days per year after five years of continuous service; and twenty-two (ZZ) working days per year after ten years of continuous service.

    3. Vacation credits accrue on a monthly basis up to a maximum of forty-four (44) working days. Vacation credits accrued in excess of 44 working days are forfeited.

    4. Although vacation allowance for fiscal-year staff accrues from the date of appointment, it may not be taken before the completion of six months service.

    5. At the time of termination, a fiscal-year staff member terminating without prejudice and within the terms of the employment agreement may be paid a maximum of twenty-two (22) working days of accrued vacation.

    6. Accrued vacation available at termination will be paid in a lump sum and included in the employee' s normal final paycheck.

    7. Scheduling of vacation must be mutually agreeable to the staff member and to the University. Only the approval of the head of the department is needed.
