Section 273-9-08 - VACATION AND SICK LEAVE ADJUSTMENTS

Current through October 16, 2022

08.01 ADVANCEMENT OF VACATION AND SICK LEAVE. Agency heads may advance up to 80 hours of vacation and sick leave to employees (pro-rated for part-time employees). Employees must reimburse the state for all used unearned vacation and sick leave upon separation or transfer.

08.02 LEAVE FOR EMPLOYEES WORKING FOR MORE THAN ONE AGENCY.Employees working for more than one agency earn vacation and sick leave from each agency.

08.03 TRANSFERRING VACATION AND SICK LEAVE BALANCE TO ANOTHER AGENCY. Employees who transfer from one agency to another in the State Classified Personnel System will have their accrued vacation and sick leave transferred to the new agency and will not start with a negative balance. Upon mutual agreement between the two agencies involved and the employee, a portion of accumulated vacation leave may be transferred to the new agency, with the former agency paying the employee for the untransferred portion. Employees who transfer from a non-classified agency to the State Classified Personnel System will have transferred to the new agency the amount of vacation and sick leave they would have earned had they been in the State Classified Personnel System, minus the vacation and sick leave used, and will not start with a negative balance.

08.04 VACATION AND SICK LEAVE ACCUMULATION FOR EMPLOYEES. Employees will be in a pay status in order to earn vacation and sick leave. Part-time employees earn vacation and sick leave in proportion to their budgeted percentage of the full-time FTE. Leave is not earned until after the pay period has ended and, therefore, is not available for use until the following pay period.
