Details of the   Leave Accrual information are also available on the HR website.

If it appears that you will accrue excess leave, please work with your supervisor to plan time off which will not disrupt University operations, particularly during the month of December and semester’s end.


Please note that you may donate up to 40 hours of leave (depending on collective bargaining agreements) in a fiscal year to the Catastrophic Leave Donation Program. For more information on Catastrophic Leave Donation or to donate leave, go to:
