Employees terminating employment for any reason are entitled to payment for their accrued, unused hours of vacation, up to a maximum of two times their annual accrual. However, the University may deduct money from such payment to collect, in whole or in part, debts the employee owes to the University. Such debts include debts created by credit extended to employees, payments owed for parking violations, library fines, employee theft, goods or services received from the University or University auxiliaries (e.g. Taylor Health Center), and the like.
If the employee objects to such deduction, the employee may appeal the University’s decision regarding the deduction by following the grievance procedures set forth in Section 10 of the Employee Handbook.
This policy is intended to authorize payroll to deduct money from employees' unused vacation leave payments to collect debts employees owe to the University.
This policy applies to all faculty and staff earning vacation leave.
