Non-exempt (paid hourly and twice a month) employees hired on or after Jan. 1, 1994, may carry over a maximum of 21 days of accrued vacation leave to the next vacation year. Non-exempt employees hired before Jan. 1, 1994, may carry over a maximum of 30 days of accrued vacation leave to the next vacation year beginning May 1.

You can access your vacation hours balance on your most recent paycheck. Please submit all leave reports and time sheets regularly with each payroll cycle to ensure that your time-off records are accurate.
