The facts about holiday pay and vacation carryover


Here�s the information you need about vacation carryover and holiday pay for members of your regular clerical and service staff.

Vacation carry forward

The current vacation policy for regular clerical and service staff allows each staff member to carry forward up to 320 hours of accrued vacation into the 2008 calendar year regardless of his or her number of years of service.

Please inform your regular clerical and service staff members that vacation hours in excess of 320 hours will be forfeited if not used on or before Sunday, December 23, 2007.

Holiday pay

Any regular clerical and service staff member in layoff status for 30 days or less during the end-of-the-year holiday season will receive pay for University-designated holidays. The number of holidays at this time of year totals four. This year, those four days are as follows:

Monday, December 24, 2007 Monday, December 31, 2007
Tuesday, December 25, 2007 Tuesday, January 1, 2008

Therefore, a staff member in layoff status, as previously specified, should receive normal holiday pay for these four holidays.

If a staff member who is not an official retiree is terminating after a holiday, the staff member must be physically at work the day after the holiday to receive holiday pay. Terminal vacation may not be used to "bridge" a holiday in order to receive pay for the holiday.
