The following is a brief overview regarding vacation and floating holiday accrual information. For more information on these and other types of leaves, please refer to the
Institutional Policies and Procedures Manual.
Full-Time administrative staff and Regular Part-Time administrative staff working at least 20 hours per week are entitled to the following time-off benefits:
Full-Time administrative staff and Regular Part-Time administrative staff accrue vacation days each pay period within a fiscal year. The fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. A maximum of twenty-two (22) vacation days per fiscal year can be earned
as a Full-Time administrative staff member. Regular Part-Time administrative staff members accrue vacation days on a prorated basis.
You must have completed at least six months of service before you can use any accrued vacation leave.
Employees may carry over up to 15 earned vacation days per fiscal year. For 2016 only, the cutoff date on which balances will be adjusted to the 15-day maximum allotment will be August 31. In 2017 and in all subsequent years, the cutoff date will be June 30 of each year.
Vacation accrual in excess of the maximum carryover currently in effect must be used by the dates indicated above. If the excess vacation days are not used by those dates, the excess vacation days will be forfeited. There is no provision for pay in lieu of earned vacation,
except at termination of employment and only to the maximum of accrual plus then-allowed carryover.
Part-time administrators' vacation carryover will be pro-rated. Please note that there will be no change to the 22 days (or prorated amount for part-time staff) of vacation leave accrued by administrative staff at this time. There will also be no waivers of this fiscal year
end carryover policy, so all administrative employees are encouraged to speak with their supervisors and begin planning their vacation time to avoid the loss of any earned time throughout the transition period.
In addition to the carryover outlined in the section prior to this one, if administrative employees have any excess vacation days above the 15 days allowable on the cutoff date, those days will be placed in a special “leave” bank, to be used by the employee if and when the
employee has an event that qualifies under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Events include (but are not limited to) birth or adoption of a child and care for a parent, child, or spouse with a serious health condition. The maximum balance for the special leave bank will be 22
days (prorated for part-time employees). The employee can receive pay by using these days during an otherwise unpaid FMLA period. Administrative employees must apply for and be approved for FMLA in order to use days in the special leave
bank. Review the FMLA policy
here for more information. Note that circumstances that may not be explicitly spelled out in the FMLA policy may in fact be eligible for special leave bank days, so the employee should consult with a member of the Benefits office of Human Resources.
All full-time non-union staff will accrue floating holiday credits at the rate of one day per quarter:
Floating holiday credits not used by June 30 will be forfeited. For further details, please contact
Sick days may be used for the employee's personal illness; they cannot be used to care for family members. They can be taken in half-day increments for personal illness and doctor's appointments. There is no set number of leave days available. An employee absent
because of personal illness must notify his/her supervisor and/or department head as close as possible to his/her scheduled start time. Also see the Institutional Policies and Procedures Manual for details on NYC Paid Sick Time.
Please note: As of January 10, 2016, all requests for leave are to be
made using the university's MyDay system. If you need to report leaves
for a date earlier than January 10, 2016, please contact
