Changes to planned leave before fall semester and ‘use it or lose it’ date

The following has been approved by the OLLU President’s Council:

  • Guidelines for planned leave before fall semester
    During critical times in the academic year, it is imperative to have offices and departments fully staffed so that the university can provide the best possible service to students. With this service in mind, all OLLU faculty and staff are asked to avoid scheduling planned leave between Monday, Aug. 13-Friday, Aug. 31, 2018. A supervisor may extend the dates established by the university for individual offices and departments. Special circumstances that require leave during this time (a child’s wedding, taking your child to college) must be approved by the vice president or chief administrator of a division.
  • “Use it or Lose it date” – Permanently moved to Dec. 31 each year
    To accommodate this change, the “use it or lose it date” has been permanently moved from Aug. 31 to Dec. 31, effective this year. This is the date by which employees must use or lose any vacation hours that exceed the carryover limit. The carryover limit is equal to the hours of vacation an employee can accrue in a year.
