Policy 801.8 - Transferability of sick and annual leave
Effective November 18, 1999; Issued December 10, 1999


Board policy: 

1.  If an employee (including faculty) at any campus of the university system accepts a position at another campus of the university system, the employee shall not receive cash compensation for unused sick leave or annual leave, if applicable. 

2.  In such a transfer, the receiving campus assumes the liability for the accrued sick and annual leave credits transferred with the employee. 

3.  If a break in service occurs during a change in employment between campuses of the university system, the employee must receive a lump sum payment for accrued annual leave and sick leave credits earned after July 1, 1971.  A break in service means a period of time in excess of five working days when the person is not employed and that severs continuous employment.  The summer break does not constitute a break in service for employees with academic year appointments.
