Vacation Reminders from HR
If you are a classified or unclassified employee who accrues vacation, be sure and check your leave balance to see if you are are at risk of losing any accrued vacation time. According to the university policy regarding annual vacation leave for nonteaching unclassified and classified personnel, the maximum amount of vacation an employee can accrue is that which can be earned in a three-year period.
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. Employees with more than 200 hours of accrued vacation time received an email from HR Records last week.
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 https://www.kent.edu/hr/benefits/vacation.
With the summer vacation season here, all employees who earn vacation are reminded to report and submit their leave and check their balances. Accurate and timely reporting is important to make sure the time is being deducted correctly and that you are not exceeding your accrual maximum.
You can check your leave balance on the Employee Dashboard in FlashLine. Leave is recorded through the Leave Reporting access on the Employee Dashboard.
