Annual Sick Leave Conversion Period Coming Soon!

The annual sick leave conversion for eligible staff employees will take place Sept. 1 through Sept. 14. During this period, eligible classified and unclassified employees with a continuing appointment may convert accrued sick leave to vacation per administrative policy 3342-6-11.2.

Eligible full-time employees who have a balance of at least 500 hours of sick leave may convert:

  • A maximum of five days (40 hours) per fiscal year of sick leave to vacation; or
  • A combined maximum of five days (40 hours) per fiscal year of sick leave to vacation and personal leave.

Eligible part-time employees who have a balance of at least 250 hours may convert:

  • A maximum of three days (24 hours) per fiscal year of sick leave to vacation; or
  • A combined maximum of three days (24 hours) per fiscal year of vacation and personal leave.

Eligible classified employees represented by AFSCME who have a balance of at least 500 hours of sick leave may convert a maximum of five days (40 hours) per fiscal year of sick leave to vacation.

The conversion process should be completed online through FlashLine. The system will tell you how much sick and vacation leave you currently have and how much you are eligible to convert. With the electronic process, employees will receive a confirmation email and will also see the conversion reflected immediately in their FlashLine leave balances.
