PDA 13. Vacations

Vacation Allowance
Employees, excluding extra help, or as herein otherwise provided, shall be entitled to vacation with pay in accordance with the following schedules. Accruals shall be prorated for any employees, except extra help who work less than full time during a pay period.

(1) During the first five (5) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 4.0 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(2) After the completion of five (5) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 4.9 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(3) After the completion of ten (10) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 5.9 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(4) After the completion of fifteen (15) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 6.5 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(5) After the completion of twenty (20) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 6.8 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(6) After the completion of twenty five (25) years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 7.4 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

(7) No employee will be allowed to carry an accumulation of more than 52 biweekly pay periods’ vacation accrual at any one time. However, employees may accrue unlimited vacation time in excess of the maximum allowance when such vacation accrues due to remaining in a pay status during periods of illness or injury which precluded liquidating vacation earned in excess of the maximum allowed.

(8) No vacation will be permitted prior to the completion of thirteen (13) full biweekly pay periods of continuous service.

(9) Vacation may be used in increments of 6 minutes.

(10) Extra help do not accrue vacation credits, except that the service in an extra help capacity may be included with service in a regular established position in computing vacation allowance for purposes of this Section. Such service in an extra help capacity may not be included if it preceded a period of over 28 days during which the employee was not in a pay status.
