September Leave Balance Reminders
Kent State employees who earn vacation time should be aware of two deadlines during the month of September.
The annual sick leave conversion began Sept. 1 and runs through Sept. 14. The process can be done electronically through the Employee Dashboard in FlashLine. Per policy 6-11.2, administrative policy regarding conversion of sick leave, eligible full-time employees with a balance of at least 500 sick leave hours may convert a maximum of 40 hours to vacation or a combination of vacation and personal leave. Eligible part-time employees with a minimum balance of 250 sick hours may convert up to 24 hours. Eligible employees have received an email with instructions on how to convert the time.
Classified and unclassified staff have until Sept. 30 to use vacation time that has accrued beyond the maximum allowed. After Sept. 30 any vacation balances beyond the maximum will be forfeited. Employees who are over the allowed maximum have been notified through an email. You can check your leave balance in the My HR tab in FlashLine.
Questions on the sick leave conversion or the vacation cutback should be directed to a member of the HR records staff at 330-672-2901.
