Running the ALRA Eligibility/Election Summary Report in HRS

Overview

Faculty, Academic staff, and/or limited employees may be eligible to bank into a banked leave account or sometimes referred to as an Annual Leave Reserve Account (ALRA) after they have completed 10 or more fiscal years of continuous employment. Banking of leave comes from the vacation balance or the vacation carryover balance on June 30th. Beginning with the 11th fiscal year, an employee is eligible to bank up to 40 hours of vacation or vacation carryover. The option to bank vacation is offered immediately following the fiscal year in which an employee is eligible. Beginning with the 25th fiscal year, an employee is eligible to bank up to 80 hours of vacation or vacation carryover. The option to bank vacation is offered immediately following the fiscal year in which an employee is eligible.

Process Considerations:

  • Any hours placed in the Banked Leave/ Annual Leave Reserve Account (ALRA) do not expire and can be used at any time or paid out upon termination or retirement.
  • Employees should review their absence balances portal in July for banked leave eligibility. The employee will then need to request the banked leave conversion via their portal. 
  • The report contains all active employees that are eligible to bank Vacation to their banked leave account for this year.  The report also indicates how much the employee has elected and it can be run multiple times: once for eligibility, and again for who has made an election.  
  • If an employee has more than one employee record, all records will appear on the report.  However, the amount of banked leave that the person is eligible to bank is not prorated between the records. For example:  An employee with an ALRA counter of 140 has Empl Record 0 and Empl Record 1. The column ‘Max Avail ALRA Elig for Employee’ will show 40 hours for each record.  In this case the employee is eligible to bank a total of 40 hours; the hours can be distributed between the two records as the employee elects.

    Report Request Parameters:

      • It is recommended the report be run as of 7M calendar Group ID for the current year to get the Max Avail ALRA Elig.  If it is run for the ALRA Elected, it can be run after the entry is done.  Likely that would be 8M or 9M of the current year. Likewise this is true for the biweekly population.  You can run 7A for the Max Avail ALRA Elig or later to gather who has converted hours.  

    • Department ID: Select this option if you want to run the report at the department level. If you do not know the department code, then you can search for it by clicking on the “9.2 search icon” icon.

      • You can either run the report for Department or Empl ID, but not both simultaneously.

    • Employee ID: If you wish to generate a report for a particular employee, then you should use this option. If you do not know the employee ID, then you can search for it by clicking on the “9.2 search icon” icon.

      • You can either run the report for Empl ID or Department, but not both simultaneously.
