  • 27 Leave Periods in 2012
    Alison's Mom
    The author should check his facts to avoid making erroneous statements such as some of the fodder in his article. In agencies where the 2012 leave year ends on January 12, 2012, there are twenty-seven leave periods (which, by the way are different from pay periods). Those employees in the 0-2 full years accrual category will earn an additional 4 hours of annual leave, those in the 3-14 full years category will earn an additional 6 hours of leave, and those in the 15 and over category will earn an additional 8 hours of leave in leave period 27 which ends on January 12, 2012. The author was incorrect in his statement that those in the 3-15 year category would earn an additional 8 hours, and that those in the 15 and over category would earn an additional 10 hours. By the way, the 3-15 year employees do earn an additional 4 hours of leave in the last PAY period of 2012 which ends on December 15th. These 4 hours are given so that the leave accrual for this category is not a fractional number, thereby making this leave accrual for the 2012 leave year 166 hours rather than 160 hours. The 2013 leave year begins on January 13, 2013. Those who were in the use or lose category for 2012 and had over 240 hours of accumulated leave will lose the amount over 240 hours accrued as of January 13, 2013. I am speaking only of regular employees, not SES or any other category of government employees. And if these facts further confuse the author, he needs to find a new position.
