Request to Temporarily Waive Annual Leave Rollover Maximum Rates





For discussion only.


Approve a temporary waiver of the following Baldwin County Employee Handbook Policy, Section IV.A. regarding the maximum amount of annual leave an employee can rollover, applicable to the 2020 calendar only.  The waiver will allow employees to carry over annual leave hours from calendar year 2020, to calendar year 2021.  Any carryover hours from calendar year 2020 must be used in the calendar year 2021 


"Employees may take annual leave in the year it was earned, or may carry it over for use in later years.  However, there is a limit to the amount of annual leave that may accrue.

Years of Service
                     Maximum Accrued Hours                      (2 x annual rate)
0 - 5
                                                               192 hours                                                                (24 days)
6 -10
                                                               240 hours                                                                (30 days)
11 - 15
                                          336 hours                                                                (42 days)
Over 15
                                          384 hours                                                                (48 days)

If an employee earns annual leave in excess of the maximum amount listed on the table, the excess amount will be forfeited if not taken by the last full pay period in the calendar year.  The amount of leave at the end of the pay period shall be no more than two (2) years of total accrued time.  Employees must consider the time accrued for the last full pay period of the calendar to be included in leave that must be taken."
