Will You Forfeit Your Leave?
Employees are encouraged to be proactive in knowing your own leave balances, how much you have used during the school year and how your balance is affected by your working agreement and District policy. If you earn vacation you should ensure your balance on August 31st (June 30th for Administrators) is no more than thirty (30) of your work days. Any days in excess of thirty (30) days will be forfeited on September 1st (July 1st for Administrators).
Additionally, each employee should review their working agreement regarding their rights associated with personal leave. If you are allowed to accrue Personal leave, it is accounted for in the “Other Paid Leave” category in the Time Off Section of EA+. Any excess personal leave not used or cashed out (if eligible) by June 30th (August 31st for full year employees), will be forfeited on September 1st.
For days that qualify for cash out (please see your working agreement) complete a paper leave slip, mark “Other” and write “completed qualifications to receive _(insert number)_ days of personal leave cash out”. Your request for cash out (leave slip) must be approved (signed) by your building administrator and must be submitted to Payroll by June 30, 2017.
The Leave slip may be printed from the District’s website. Go to Staff, Employee Forms, Leave Slip – Exception Reporting Form.
