Update: Annual Leave Overages

Man Working and Daydreaming of Vacation

The school division recognizes that due to the disruptions to personal and work schedules related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees are not able to take time off. We previously announced that the conversion of annual leave at or above 320 hours that normally occurs at the end of an employee’s birth month has been temporarily disabled. In recognition that employees may not be able to take time off for the immediate foreseeable future, the suspension will be extended until February 28, 2021.

Employees will not have annual leave overages converted until their next birth month starting March 1, 2021. For example, an employee with an overage whose birth month was March (2020) will have until March 2021 to use overage amounts. Similarly, an employee whose birthday is February (2021), will have until February 2022 to use their overage amounts.
