Running the Banked Leave Annual Eligibility/Election Summary Report in HRS
OverviewThe University Staff Annual Leave Conversion provides an opportunity to University Staff employees on the use of their unused annual leave (vacation). Based on eligibility, University Staff employees can bank annual leave, receive cash, or a combination of both.
**Remember -- Employees can now bank vacation carryover as well as current year vacation. Vacation Carryover will be deducted first.
Each year, after the October B or C bi-weekly payroll confirmation, an eligibility report is created by the UWSS Service Operations and used to prepare the Annual Leave Conversion Option Form. It is also used to notify the employees who are eligible for conversion of their unused vacation hours.
