As we approach the end of the fiscal year, we would like to remind employees to check their leave balances and consider donating vacation leave to the Shared Leave Pool. In the past, some employees end up losing leave at the end of the fiscal year and the shared leave pool provides another alternative.
Please note that employees accrue vacation monthly and may carry days forward from one month to the next. The maximum amount of vacation that can be carried forward from one fiscal year to the next cannot exceed two times the employee’s annual allowance. For example, if an employee earns vacation at the rate of 13.34 hours each pay period, or 160 hours per year (20 days), the employee may carry forward up to a maximum of 320 hours (40 days). Any amount of leave over the maximum accumulation of two times the annual allowance is lost at the end of the fiscal year (June 30).
