|Annual leave reminder|
Annual leave taken in 2006 must be submitted to the Payroll Office no later than Monday, Jan. 8, at 4:30 p.m. Leave submitted after this date will be subtracted from your 2007 leave balance, and will not be reinstated if you lose leave for 2006.
Employees will lose leave in two situations:
1) All employees hired prior to Jan. 1, 2006, must use a minimum of 40 hours of leave each calendar year, or they will lose the difference between 40 hours and what they actually used. (The 40 hours minimum is prorated for part-time employees.) Employees hired after Jan. 1, 2006, are not required to use a minimum number of hours.
2) Employees with an annual leave balance greater than 240 hours as of 1/15/2007 (Exception for CND employees who have received VP approval to carryover additional hours).
Your Jan. 12, 2007, check will reflect your final leave balance for 2006, prior to any adjustments. Your Jan. 31 check will reflect your leave balance after all adjustments.
If you are in a use or lose situation and are unable to use your annual leave, you may want to consider donating your leave to a fellow employee that has been qualifed to accept leave through the Leave Sharing program. These employees, or a member of their immediate family, have a severe illness and have expended all of their leave due to the illness. Contact the Payroll Office for names and instructions. To be deducted from 2006 balances, leave donations must also be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. Jan. 8.
