The University grants paid vacation for the purpose of rest and relaxation.
Vacation leave accrues from the first of the month following the date of hire as a regular or academic staff member and continues during periods of work, sick leave, vacation and other periods of paid leave. Vacation does not accrue for hours worked on an overtime basis.
The maximum amount of vacation that staff members can accumulate is the amount they would accrue in one and one-half years at their current annual accrual rate. For instance, if a staff member has 10 years of service the maximum number of vacation hours which can be accrued is 264 hours; the staff member will not accrue any additional vacation hours until the available balance falls below 264 hours.
