Vacation Accrual Extension

November 2, 2020

Key takeaway: If eligible, non-represented staff will continue accruing vacation leave through June 30, 2021, even if they are over their maximum.

Dear Colleagues,

UC President Drake has 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 December 31, 2020, to June 30, 2021. 

Effective June 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, policy-covered staff employees may receive up to an additional 12 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. Policy-covered staff who earn PTO should refer to their location’s PTO program for eligibility information. This does not apply to represented employees.
