Vacation and Sick Leave Payout

Civil Service Staff

Vacation Leave Payout
Employees are paid for any vacation leave accumulated and not used as of the employee's last scheduled workday. If an employee accepts employment at another state agency or institution, under certain conditions, accrued vacation leave may be transferred, subject to the State Universities Civil Service System.

Sick Leave Payout
At the time of termination, employees with unused accumulated sick leave that was earned between January 1, 1984 and December 31, 1997, may elect to be compensated for up to one-half of the amount.

Employees with unused accumulated sick leave earned prior to January 1, 1984 and on or after January 1, 1998, and/or accumulated while ineligible for compensation under the State Finance Act, are not eligible for any payment or payout.

Academic Staff

Vacation Leave Payout
Accumulated, unused vacation time, up to a maximum of 48 days, is paid out at the time of retirement. If the employee leaves before the termination of his/her contract, the vacation payout will be prorated for the portion of the year worked.

Sick Leave Payout
One-half of all unused, accumulated compensable sick leave earned between January 1, 1984, and December 31, 1997 is paid out at the time of retirement. The remainder is utilized for establishing service credit in SURS. If employees prefer, they may elect to have all of the post-January 1, 1984 unused sick leave days applied toward service credit in the retirement system.
