Vacation Carryover Extension

HR Cougar Corner

As mentioned during the Campus Connection meeting, a recommendation is going for Board approval on May 21 to allow for additional time to use vacation balances. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most staff are working remotely, and with the State of Illinois stay-at-home order, it has been difficult for employees to use their accrued vacation time. All employees will be encouraged to use vacation prior to July 1, 2020 as possible, however, employees whose vacation balance is above the standard rollover will have up to July 1, 2021 to use the additional carryover hours. These hours must be used by this time or will be lost. They cannot be rolled over into any other form of benefit or paid as cash.
