803.16 VACATION

 

 

Faculty members as defined in SECTION 203.03 employed on a twelve (12) months or fiscal year basis shall be entitled to vacation earned at the rate of one and three-fourths (1 3/4) working days per month. All working days during the fiscal year shall be counted, absences during academic calendar breaks shall be recorded as vacation, and all vacation days shall be recorded on institutional leave records.

 

Earned vacation may be accrued up to a maximum of forty-five (45) working days and employees shall be compensated for all accrued vacation time up to but not exceeding forty-five (45) days upon termination of service from the University System of Georgia. The compensation shall be based on institutional leave records. A terminating employee shall not accrue vacation after the last working day of his employment.

 

Upon a move between University System institutions, with no break in service, an employee must transfer accrued vacation leave of between one (1) and twenty (20) days. For employees with accrued vacation leave of greater than twenty (20) days, the employee may elect one of the following options:

 

1. Transfer of the total accrued vacation balance, not to exceed forty-five (45) days.

 

2. Payment by the institution from which the employee is moving of accrued vacation leave in excess of twenty (20) days. The total accrued vacation leave for which the employee may be paid shall not exceed twenty-five (25) days.

 

Vacation shall be taken at times mutually acceptable to the employee and his supervisor.

 

FACULTY MEMBERS EMPLOYED ON AN ACADEMIC YEAR BASIS DO NOT EARN VACATION TIME.

 

Faculty members changing from a fiscal year contract to an academic year contract shall be paid their accrued vacation time subject to the forty-five (45) day maximum payment restriction upon termination of the fiscal year contract.

 

Non-Faculty employees working full-time, other than temporary employees, shall be entitled to vacation at the rate of one and one-fourth (1 ) working days per month for each of the first five years of employment, one and one-half (1 ) working days per month for each of the next five years of employment, and one and three-fourths (1 ) working days per month for each year after the completion of ten years of continuous service. Employees, other than temporary employees, working one-half time or more but less than full-time shall earn and accrue vacation time in an equivalent ratio to their percentage of time employed.

 

Earned vacation may be accrued up to a maximum of 45 working days and employees shall be compensated for all accrued vacation time upon termination of service from the University System of Georgia for any reason. Such compensation shall be based on information from institutional vacation leave records. A terminating employee shall not accrue vacation leave after the last working day of employment.

 

Temporary employees, including student assistants, and regular employees working less than one-half time do not earn or accrue vacation time.
