Dec. 31, 2018 is the final date for use-or-lose vacation time

There is a one-year carry over limit on accrued vacation time. The new “use-it-or-lose-it” date has been set to Dec. 31. Employees cannot carry over beyond this date more than the number of annual vacation days for which they are currently eligible.

If work or medical conditions prohibit the employee from taking their accrued vacation by Dec. 31, the chief administrator of that division can request an extension of one additional year. The chief administrator and the employee must make every effort to schedule and use the accrued vacation in the coming year as additional extensions will not be permitted.
