University Staff: Use Paid Leave Before Year-End

University Staff should plan ahead and schedule paid leave now to avoid losing hours that are not eligible for carry over into 2023.

Personal, Legal and Floating Legal Holidays – Use by December 31, 2022
Personal, Legal and Floating Legal Holidays granted for 2022 must be used by December 31, 2022, or they will be lost.

Floating Legal Holidays will be granted for December 24 and December 31, 2022 and must be used by December 31, 2022. A floating legal holiday occurs when a legal holiday falls on a Saturday. An employee is granted eight hours of floating legal holiday (prorated, if part-time). When a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, the legal holiday is observed, and the UW System is closed on the Monday following the legal holiday.

All vacation hours carried over from 2021 must be used or banked (if eligible) by December 31, 2022, or they will be lost.

Vacation not used within the calendar year earned may be carried over until December 31 of the following year.

Use the View Absence Balances tipsheet to review your Vacation Carryover, Personal Holiday and Legal Holiday leave balances. Your Legal Holiday balance includes any Floating Legal Holiday hours.

Note for Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees, paid leave is granted on a fiscal year basis (July 1 – June 30).
