All Twelve-Month Employees

Dear Twelve-Month Employees,


COVID-19 has, indeed, been a challenge to our entire workforce - both professionally and personally.


Please remember that many of you have limits as to how many vacation days can carry over to the next fiscal year (July 1, 2020 is the start of the next fiscal year).


Unfortunately, that means you may need to take vacation time during this pandemic, which we are aware is hardly ideal. Although a staycation may seem unappealing, please remember that taking vacation - despite the destination (or lack thereof!) - is extremely important for your work-life balance; studies show that taking a vacation improves physical and mental personal wellness and morale. So please take time off even if that just translates into shutting off the laptop (and taking the email App off your phone!).

How Many days can you rollover?


  • Non-bargaining with a Personnel Contract
    If you have an individual personnel contract, check your personnel contract.
  • Non-bargaining without a Personnel Contract
    You can carry over no more than the yearly entitlement.
  • Unit S (Administrative Support Staff)
    You can carry over up to ½ of your annual vacation entitlement.
  • Unit B (Administrators)
    You can carry over no more than the yearly entitlement.
  • Unit C (Custodians)
    You can carry over up to 40 hours.

How to check your accruals?
