24 two hundred forty (240) hours;
25 During the third ten thousand four hundred (10,400) hours of credited
26 state service, vacation leave may be accrued and accumulated to a maximum of

28 After thirty-one thousand two hundred (31,200) hours of credited state

31 (3) Vacation leave shall be transferable from department to department

39 (6) Vacation leave shall be taken on a workday basis. Regularly scheduled
40 days off and officially designated holidays falling within a period of vaca-
41 tion leave shall not be counted against vacation leave. Vacation leave shall
42 not be taken in advance of being earned and shall only be taken in pay periods
43 subsequent to being earned.
1 (7) With the approval of the appointing authority for both the transfer-
2 ring and receiving officer or employee, an officer or employee may transfer
3 accrued vacation leave, up to a maximum of forty (40) hours per fiscal year,
4 to , or for the use of, another officer or employee for purposes

12 balance exceeds eighty (80) hours, and in no event may an officer or employee
13 transfer an amount of accrued leave which would result in an accrued balance
14 of less than eighty (80) hours.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to allow State agencies to create
a "bank" or "pool" thus permitting employees to donate vacation
leave to this pool. This would provide higher education with the
ability to allow faculty who do not earn vacation leave to apply for
shared leave in the event of serious illness and to provide
anonymity for those employees wishing to keep private their illness.
No Fiscal Impact.
