Year End Information for Classified Employees

**Please review the information below regarding important year-end information for classified employees and supervisors**

Vacation Carry Over
Normally, vacation time must be used within the calendar year during which it is earned.  Per the 2011-2013 Compensation Plan, employees may carry over any unused earned vacation into the following calendar year.  Any vacation carried over from the previous calendar year must be used by December 31 of the following calendar year.

The Human Resources System (HRS) will automatically take any vacation absences entered first from carry over balances before taking from 2013 allocations.

Compensatory Time
Compensatory time is able to be carried into the following calendar year if approved by the immediate supervisor.  If carried over, unused compensatory time must be used by December 31 of the following year or it will be paid out on the final payroll of the calendar year.

Personal and Legal Holidays
Personal and Legal holiday hours may not be carried into 2013 and if not used by December 31, 2012 will be forfeited.

Forms for all employees eligible for the Annual Leave Conversion Option are now available on the My UW System Portal, under the Time and Absence section, Statements tab.  All completed forms must be submitted to HR no later than Monday, December 3, 2012.
