4.63 Vacations and Holidays

Vacation - Eligible staff members earn vacation accruals at rates specified in appropriate employee group policies or contracts. Eligible part-time staff earn accruals at the pro-rata equivalent. Personal day earnings of 2 days per year are accrued and included in vacation balances. Vacation earnings, including personal days and converted sick leave days, are capped at the level of twice the annual accrual rate. Staff members begin earning vacation accruals on their first day in pay status, and accruals continue during any period of service in a pay status.

Usage - Vacation usage is limited to the currently accumulated total vacation earnings. Holidays falling within the period of a paid vacation are paid as holidays and are not charged to the staff member's vacation earnings. Holidays are not excluded in calculating payment of vacation balances at termination, however.
