How do I calculate my vacation time?
Your annual vacation allowance is based on your length of service from the date of full time employment. During the introductory period (first 90 days of employment or any extension thereof), employees may not draw upon vacation time. Upon the successful completion of the introductory period, the granted vacation time will be released to the current year's vacation account.
For instance, if your date of hire was June 1st, in October you would have the following vacation available to use through December. (7 months x .833 days = 5.83 vacation days or 45.19 hours)
On January 1 you will be updated with 10 days to use for the calendar year (January – December).
If your date of hire is January 1 then you would accrue the following vacation time for use until the beginning of the new fiscal year (January – June). (6 months x 1.666 days = 9.996; 10 days or 77.47 hours)
On July 1 you will be updated with 20 days to use for the next 12 months (July to June).
With the written permission of your supervisor, unused vacation time can be rolled over for a period of 90-days.
For details and additional information regarding the policies governing vacation time, please refer to the Employee Handbook.
