An employee who wishes to observe a religious holiday(s) may do so in lieu of any holiday(s) for which the employee serves as a member of the skeleton workforce required by statute or by taking a vacation day. Employees who wish to substitute a holiday should obtain their supervisor's approval as soon as possible.
There are varying skeleton workforce requirements for each holiday. Skeleton workforce requirements in the Office of Facilities Management, Police Department, Telecommunications, Housing, and the Library and leave approvals will be set by the appropriate director.
Inquiries regarding the holiday schedule should be directed to Eunice Currie, Assistant VIce President for Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or extension 2-7091.
The vacation accrual rates and maximum carry forward rates are now set by statute. The accrual rates and carry forward amounts for a full time employee are as follows:
|Employees with Total State Employment Of||Hours Accrued per Month||Days Accrued Per Year||Max Hours to Carry Forward Year-to-Year|
|0 - 24 months||8||12||180|
|25 - 60 months||9||13.5||244|
|61 - 120 months||10||15||268|
|121 - 180 months||11||16.5||292|
|181 - 240 months||13||19.5||340|
|241 - 300 months||15||22.5||388|
|301 - 360 months||17||25.5||436|
|361 - 420 months||19||28.5||484|
|421 - or more||21||31.5||532|
Although all employees are encouraged to utilize vacation in the year accrued, employees may carry forward unused vacation from one fiscal year to the next. The schedule presented above indicates the maximum authorized carry forward. Regular employees who are less than full-time will accrue vacation on a proportionate basis, and the maximum hours to carry forward will also be proportionate.
An employee will earn vacation entitlement beginning on the first day of employment with the State and terminating on the last day of duty. Credit for one month's accrual will be given for each month or fraction of the month of employment with the State. Vacation with pay may not be granted until the employee has had continuous employment with the State for six (6) months, although credit will be accrued during that period.
Inquiries regarding vacation regulations should be directed to Eunice Currie, Assistant VIce President for Human Resources at email@example.com or extension 2-7091.
