Administrators – Accrued Leave

 

SICK LEAVE


Administrators (both APA and Non-Unit) earn 15 sick leave days per year at a rate of 0.057692 hours for each hour on the payroll.

It is important to note that sick leave cannot be used
before it is credited.

APA administrators who have accumulated 45 or more sick hours, may join the Sick Leave Bank by donating one (1) sick day (7.5 hours) during the month of September. Notices regarding this benefit are distributed each year by the Payroll & Benefits Office. There are no additional sick leave benefits available to non-unit administrators.

There is no limit on the number of sick hours an employee can accumulate. Upon retirement, you are entitled to payment for 20% of your accumulated sick leave.

 

PERSONAL LEAVE


Every administrator (both APA and Non-Unit) on the payroll on January 1 is credited with three (3) personal leave days (22.5 hours) to be taken by December 31 of that year.

An APA administrator hired before January 31 is credited with three (3) personal leave days; between February 1 and April 30, two (2) personal days; between May 1 and August 30, one (1) personal day; and after August 30, no personal days.

A non-unit administrator hired between January 1 and March 31 is credited with three (3) personal days; between April 1 and June 30, two (2) personal days; between July 1 and September 30, one (1) personal day; and after September 30 , no personal days.

These personal leave hours are credited and available on the first day of employment although it may take more than one pay-cycle before they appear on your pay advice.

Personal days do not accumulate. Any personal days not used before December 31 each year are forfeited.

Vacation status (the rate at which vacation leave is earned) varies according to the length of creditable state service.
