Vacation leave will accrue from the first month of employment, however it may be used only upon successful completion of the trial service period (see Compensation Policy 748-F).

Vacation accrual will apply only during months in which ,the employee is in a paid status (either actively at work or on approved paid sick or vacation leave) for more than half the working days of that month.

Vacation leave must be scheduled in advance via a Leave Request form, and must have supervisory approval. Vacation leave will be granted or denied based on the operational requirements of the department.

Employees must use any excess vacation hours within 30 days of Leaching maximum accrual.

Upon termination or a reduction in work hours which affects eligibility for vacation accrual, non-exempt employees will receive cash compensation for unused vacation hours up to the maximum accrual; exempt employees will be compensated to a maximum of 80 hours. If employment is terminated during the trial service period (for any reason) the employee will not be eligible to receive any cash compensation for any accrued vacation time.
