Use or Lose Your Personal Holidays

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

For 2014, that means that employees in this category must take their personal holidays during the June 1-14 pay period – or they will be forfeited automatically.

The new personal holiday balance for the 2014/2015 period will be reflected on the June 15–June 28 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: www.uab.edu/policies

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

If you have any questions, please contact the Benefits Office at 934-3458.
