OA Employment Policies

Temporary Changes to OA Time Off:

Maximum Accrual

Officers of administration may temporarily accrue vacation leave beyond the current maximum.

A temporary change was implemented in June 2020 to allow for a maximum vacation accrual of 340 hours. A step-down approach to ending the temporary change to the vacation accrual maximum begins this October to allow more time to use this important benefit:

  • October 1, 2022 - accrual maximum changes to 300 hours.
  • October 1, 2023 - accrual maximum returns to the regular maximum allowance of 260 hours.

Any accrued vacation that exceeds these limits on the established deadlines will be automatically removed from vacation balances.
