Use or Lose Your Personal Holidays:

UAB’s policy on personal holidays requires non-hospital bi-weekly-paid full-time regular employees to take any unused personal holidays by the last biweekly pay period with a June pay date. 

For 2016, that means that employees in this category must take their personal holidays during the May 29-June 11 pay period – or they will be forfeited automatically.

The new personal holiday balance for the 2016/2017 period will be reflected on the June 12–June 25 pay period deposit statement.

Personal holidays must be taken prior to notice of termination; they will not be paid as terminal leave or during the period of notice.

A copy of the full holiday policy can be found in the UAB Policies and Procedures Library (HR policy 302) at:

The policy for monthly paid employees and hospital employees remains unchanged.
