RE:         Announcing a Temporary Increase to the Vacation Accrual Maximum for Policy-Covered Staff


The Office of the President announced a temporary policy change was approved increasing the vacation accrual maximum for policy-covered (non-represented) staff.  With increased workloads and restrictions on travel extending from spring into summer due to COVID-19, the Office of the President recognized that staff have built up more accrued vacation leave than usual.  A newly approved temporary increase will allow policy-covered staff to exceed the vacation accrual maximum through December 31, 2020. 

If you are eligible, even if you are over your maximum, you will continue accruing vacation leave through Dec. 31, 2020, allowing you this extra time to reduce your accrued vacation balance.  On Jan. 1, 2021, policy-covered staff who are over their maximum accrued vacation leave will no longer accrue additional leave until they bring their vacation balance below the maximum.  The extension will soon be applied automatically through UCPath.
