Vacation: Use It or Lose ItPosted June 26, 2011
Each year, at the end of September, vacation balances are cut back to the maximum accrual allowed per the policy. This means that employees who are over their accrual maximum must use the time by Sept. 30; if not, they will lose any vacation hours accrued beyond the maximum.
Vacation hours are earned each pay period and vary according to the employee’s years of service with Kent State and job appointment (i.e., classified or unclassified status). An explanation of vacation accrual rates, eligibility and usage is available at www.kent.edu/hr/benefits/leave/vacation.cfm.
University employees who earn vacation should report and submit their leave in a timely manner, and regularly check their balances. This is important to make sure the time is being deducted correctly and that the employee is not in danger of going over the accrual maximum.
