Reminder: Staff Paid Time Off
To the University Community
As you are aware, the University adopted a new Paid Time Off policy
that went into effect July 1, 1997 (Almanac
June 17, 1997).
This is a reminder that we are more than halfway through our transitional
year which will end June 30, 1998. During this period between July 1, 1997
and June 30, 1998 staff members are able to use the Paid Time Off distribution
received on May 1, 1997 or July 1, 1997 under the old policy, and the Paid
Time Off now earned monthly. There is no restriction on the maximum balance
of Paid Time Off days during this transitional year.
Please remember that effective July 1, 1998, staff members, regardless
of years of service, may only maintain a maximum balance of 24 Paid Time
Off days. As of July 1, 1998, if a staff member has a balance of 24 Paid
Time Off days, he/she will not earn any additional days until the balance
is less than 24 days.
Staff members are required to obtain prior supervisory approval for
paid time off unless there are other departmental procedures. Additionally,
staff members are encouraged to continue to track and plan their own Paid
Time Off. If you have any questions concerning your Paid Time Off balances,
please discuss them with your supervisor. Staff members in collective bargaining
units should refer to the terms and conditions of their specific contracts.
