Vacation Cap Deadline Extended Again

Dear Colleagues,

The maximum allowable vacation accrual was scheduled to change from 64 days to 50 days (375 hours) on December 31, 2020. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting operational needs, the APA Union and the Board of Higher Education have agreed to extend the deadline for the use of vacation leave over the 375 hour cap to June 30, 2021. There will be a final vacation accrual conversion to sick leave for any overages above the new limit on June 30, 2021. Following this last conversion, employees’ vacation hours over the limit of 375 will be forfeited going forward.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
