RE: Announcing an Extension for the Temporary Increase to the Vacation Accrual Maximum for Policy-Covered Staff
Previously in July 2020, the Office of the President announced a temporary policy change was approved increasing the vacation accrual maximum for policy-covered (non-represented) staff. On May 20, 2021, President Drake approved the request to extend the approval to temporarily increase the amount of additional time that PPSM-2.210 (Absence from Work) provides to policy-covered staff employees to use to bring the employee’s vacation accrual below the maximum from June 30, 2021 to September 30, 2021
Effective June 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021, policy-covered staff employees may receive up to an additional 15 months (instead of up to an additional four months) under PPSM-2.210 (Absence from Work) within which to take vacation leave in order to bring the employee’s vacation accrual below the maximum. The employee will continue to accrue vacation leave during this timeframe. This does not apply to represented employees.
