Reminder: Extended Vacation Carryover Deadlines Approaching

Due to the disruptive effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on employees schedules and the ability to take planned time off, the UW Admin Policy 1200-Interim 05: Interim: Vacation, Compensatory Time and Personal Holiday Carryover extended Academic Staff and Limited appointees ability to carryover unused vacation and personal holiday hours through June 30, 2021.  UW System has announced UW Admin Policy 1200-Interim 08: Extended Vacation Carryover, extending vacation carryover through October 9, 2021.

As a result, Academic Staff and Limited employees will have until October 9, 2021 to use any remaining fiscal year 2019 and/or 2020 vacation carryover balances.  On October 10th, unused vacation carryover in excess of the normal policy limits (176 hours, prorated for part-time employees), will be lost and carryover will revert to the standard limits set forth in UW Admin Policy  1210: Vacation, Paid Leave Banks, and Vacation Cash Payouts (i.e. vacation may be carried over for one fiscal year).

For University Staff, the current interim policy extends vacation carryover through December 31, 2021.

Employees with questions pertaining to their leave balances can contact Human Resources at or (920) 465-2390 for assistance.
