UAB’s policy on personal holidays, last updated in 2004, 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.

This year, that means that employees in this category must take their personal holidays by the end of the June 8-21 pay period – or they will be forfeited automatically.

The new personal holiday balance for the 2008/2009 period will be reflected on the June 22–July 5 pay period 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.

The 2008 Bi-Weekly Payroll Schedule can be found at online.

The policy for monthly paid employees and hospital employees remains unchanged. If you have any questions, please contact the Benefits Office at 934-3458.
