1. Vacation Carryover for Support Staff

    There has been a change in the definition of vacation carryover for support staff. Going forward, vacation accrued by an employee in one year is for use in the next - it is not considered carryover. Vacation carryover exists only if an employee has not used their full annual vacation allotment in the year following the accrual. This does not preclude an employee from taking vacation in the year that it is accrued.
