USF Vacation Balances Update

The president’s cabinet has amended annual vacation accrual caps for non-represented staff. Currently, the maximum number of vacation days that may be accrued is 1.5 times the staff member's annual vacation rate. As of Sept. 1, 2021 the maximum vacation balance that can be carried by non-represented staff will be reduced from 1.5 to 1.0 times their level of annual accrual. For example, if you accrue 12 days per year, you will stop accruing any vacation time if and when your vacation balance reaches 90 hours (12 days x 7.5 hours = 90 hours).

With this new accrual policy in place, staff are no longer required to reduce vacation balances to 12 days by Dec. 31, 2020. Instead, they are encouraged to reduce their balances to 1.0 times their annual accrual by Sept. 1, 2021. If the number of hours in their vacation balance is above the new maximum on Sept. 1, 2021, they will be assigned to be on vacation until the balance is at the new maximum.
