 Vacation is accrued according to the following schedule if you are regularly scheduled to work a minimum of 1000 hours per year in a benefits eligible position. Vacation cannot be used until the successful completion of your 90-day adjustment period unless previously approved by the department head. Vacation cannot be used before it is earned.

 The first of the month following an employee’s hire date to or transfer to a benefits eligible position determines the date for calculating the years of service for vacation accruals.
 Part-time hourly employees who are regularly scheduled to work a minimum of 1000 hours per year in a benefits eligible position are subject to the same vacation time in proportion to number of hours worked. Employees who are regularly scheduled for less than 1000 hours per year will not be eligible for paid vacation benefits.
 It is important that the department is appropriately staffed at all times and that the actual vacation times taken are recorded and kept on file. You must submit your vacation request to your supervisor in advance and the leave must be for no less than a half-day period. Scheduling of such leave is subject to the restrictions of the department and requires approval of your supervisor. If employment is terminated before six months, you are not eligible to be paid for accrued vacation.
