Time to Review Annual Leave Balances

TAMPA, Fla. (Dec. 16, 2008) – The end of the year is fast approaching. Now is the time to check your annual leave balance.


Your maximum yearly accrual of annual leave cannot exceed:


Staff - 240 hours

Administration and Faculty - 352 hours

Executive Service - 480 hours 


The university leave system will automatically convert excess annual leave hours to sick leave if the hours are not used by Dec. 31.


If you wish to use those hours as annual leave, the leave must be requested, approved and used by Dec. 31.


If you are requesting leave from December into January, you should make two separate leave requests, one for your December leave and one for January leave. This will allow all annual leave used in December to post in 2008.


For more information, contact your department’s leave coordinator, or call Beverly Jerry in Human Resources at (813) 974-5717.
