PERSONNEL SYSTEM
 67-5334. Vacation time. (1) Vacation time shall be computed as follows:
(a)  Vacation time shall not accrue to any officer or employee on any kind of leave of absence without pay, suspension without pay or layoff. Vacation leave shall accrue while an officer or employee is on approved leave with pay, on approved vacation leave, on approved military leave with pay, and on approved sick leave, but not when compensatory time is taken.
(b)  The rate per hour at which vacation leave shall accrue to eligible classified officers and employees earning credited state service who are covered and nonexempt under the federal fair labor standards act, 29 U.S.C. section 201, et seq., shall be at the rate represented by the proportion 96/2080 during the first ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service; at the rate represented by the proportion 120/2080 during the second ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service; at the rate represented by the proportion 144/2080 during the third ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service; and at the rate represented by the proportion 168/2080 thereafter.
(c)  Classified officers and employees earning credited state service and defined as an exempt "professional," "administrative," "computer worker" under the federal fair labor standards act, 29 U.S.C. section 201, et seq., or who are designated as exempt under any other complete exemption in federal law shall be at the rate represented by the proportion 120/2080 during the first ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service; at the rate represented by the proportion 144/2080 during the second ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service; and at the rate represented by the proportion 168/2080 thereafter.
(d)  Classified officers and employees earning credited state service and defined as an exempt "executive" under section 67-5302, Idaho Code, shall be at the rate represented by the proportion 200/2080.
(2)  Eligibility and use of vacation time shall be determined as follows:
(a)  An appointing authority shall permit each officer or employee to take vacation leave to the extent such leave has accrued.
(b)  Vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated only as follows, unless amounts in excess of the permitted accumulations have been expressly authorized in writing by the board of examiners during unusual or emergency situations:
     During the first ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service, vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated to a maximum of one hundred ninety-two (192) hours; employees classified as "executive" under section 67-5302, Idaho Code, may accrue and accumulate vacation leave to a maximum of two hundred (200) hours during this period;
     During the second ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service, vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated to a maximum of two hundred forty (240) hours;
     During the third ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited state service, vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated to a maximum of two hundred eighty-eight (288) hours;
     After thirty-one thousand two hundred (31,200) hours of credited state service, vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated to a maximum of three hundred thirty-six (336) hours.
(c)  Vacation leave shall be transferable from department to department only to the extent that it is accrued and accumulated.
(d)  Vacation leave shall not be earned, accrued or accumulated during any pay period in which the maximum accruals and accumulations provided by this section have been met.
(e)  Vacation leave not taken shall be compensated for at the time of separation only to the maximum accruals and accumulations allowed by this section.
(f)  Vacation leave shall be taken on a workday basis. Regularly scheduled days off and officially designated holidays falling within a period of vacation leave shall not be counted against vacation leave. Vacation leave shall not be taken in advance of being earned and shall only be taken in pay periods subsequent to being earned.
(g)  With the approval of the appointing authority for both the transferring and receiving officer or employee, an officer or employee may transfer accrued vacation leave, up to a maximum of eighty (80) hours per fiscal year, to another officer or employee for purposes of sick leave in the event the receiving officer or employee or a family member suffers from a serious illness or injury. The amount transferred shall be converted to sick leave. An officer or employee shall not be allowed to receive more than one hundred sixty (160) hours of transferred leave per fiscal year, and a transfer shall not occur until the receiving employee has exhausted all of his or her accrued sick and vacation leave. An officer or employee shall not be eligible to transfer vacation leave unless his or her balance exceeds eighty (80) hours, and in no event may an officer or employee transfer an amount of accrued leave which would result in an accrued balance of less than eighty (80) hours.
(3)  Upon separation from state employment and to the limits allowed by subsection (2) of this section, all classified officers and employees shall receive a lump sum payment for accrued but unused vacation leave at the hourly rate of pay of that officer or employee.
