Vacation Carry Forward Reminder

Subject: Vacation Carry Forward Reminder

University policy allows a maximum of one and one-half times the number of vacation hours earned in a given year to be carried forward. At the start of each calendar year, any vacation in excess of this amount is forfeited.

As the new calendar year approaches, we are writing to remind you of this upcoming vacation carry forward and forfeiture period as well as provide additional details and resources to assist with your planning.

  • Vacation hours for the 2012 calendar year will continue to accrue through the pay period that ends on December 23, 2012.
  • Excess vacation hours must be used by January 6, 2013 or they will be forfeited.
  • Vacation hours accrued during the pay period that ends on January 6, 2013 will be applied to your 2013 vacation balance after any forfeiture has occurred.

To view your current vacation leave balance, please access your timesheet in UAccess Employee at At the bottom of the screen, select "Balances - Click to View."
