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

In 2020, employees were granted a one-time exemption by UAB and UAB Medicine to keep and roll over any unused personal holidays until June 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns and limitations. For 2021, that means that employees in this category must take their remaining personal holidays during the June 6-June 19 pay period, or they will be automatically forfeited. The new personal holiday balance for the 2021/2022 period will be reflected on the June 20-July 3 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, HR Policy 302, can be found in the UAB Policies and Procedures Library. The policy for monthly paid employees and hospital employees remains unchanged.
