H.6.a. Annual Leave
Athens Regional Library System provides paid annual (vacation) leave to eligible employees, within established guidelines.
Salaried employees accrue annual leave. Hourly and temporary employees do not earn annual leave.
Rate of Accrual
Full-time salaried employees earn annual time at the rate of 10 hours per month during the first five years of employment, 12 hours per month during the second five years, and 14 hours per month after 10 years of continuous service.
Part-time salaried employees earn and accrue on a pro-rated basis as indicated in the chart below. Temporary and permanent reductions in hours worked will reduce the annual leave hours accrued.
Employees on probation accrue annual leave during the probationary period, but may not use it during the first three months of employment.
Annual leave is accrued while employees are on approved annual leave, sick leave, and during Family Medical Leave Act phases. Employees do not earn annual leave while on approved personal leave without pay.
Using Annual Leave
Employees must use earned annual leave at times that are mutually acceptable to the employee and his/her immediate supervisor. The time off must be pre-approved by the supervisor and will be approved according to staffing requirements. Requests for lengths of time off that constitute a staffing or fiscal burden on the library may be denied.
Annual leave must be taken in one-half hour or hourly increments.
Annual leave must be earned before it is taken, and is available for use in the pay period after it is accrued. There will not be any advances made or taken on annual leave.
A previous employee who is rehired into a leave-eligible position will begin accruing annual leave from a zero balance and with no credit for previous years of service.
