Vacation Accruals


Although all employees are encouraged to utilize their annual vacation hours (with the required supervisory approval) in the year accrued, employees may carry forward unused vacation hours from one fiscal year to the next.  Any annual leave you don't use before the end of the fiscal year (August 31) will be carried over to the next fiscal year. However, there's a limit to the number of hours you can carry from year to year. The schedule below indicates the maximum hours authorized to carry forward.  Any hours above this limit will transfer to your sick leave balance.

Part time, regular benefits-eligible employees will accrue annual vacation leave on a proportionate basis, and the maximum hours to carry forward will also be proportionate.
