VII - 7.00 - Policy on Annual Leave for Exempt and Non-Exempt Personnel

I. Purpose

To implement procedures for BOR VII-7.00 POLICY ON ANNUAL LEAVE FOR EXEMPT AND NON-EXEMPT PERSONNEL.

II. Applicability

All regular exempt and non-exempt employees of Bowie State University.

III. Guidelines and Standards

A. Approval of Annual Leave

The use of annual leave requires a timely written request and approval by the supervisor. Annual leave requests must be documented on an authorized Request for Leave Form and submitted with the employee's time sheet. If the request is denied, the administrative reasons for the denial must be provided in writing to the employee.

B. Payment of Denied Leave

As a general practice, the University does not authorize payments for denied annual leave. Therefore, as operational needs allow, supervisors should make every effort to allow employees to use earned annual leave.

C. Leave Advancement

Requests for advanced annual leave shall be submitted in writing to the Director of Human Resources. Requests must include the supervisor's endorsement and certification that the requested advance would not impair the work of the unit and that the employee has demonstrated a substantial need for the leave. The Director of Human Resources will make a recommendation to the President on the request and notify the employee of the decision. Repayment of advanced annual leave may be made by applying accrued leave or annual leave or cash.

IV. Exceptions

None
