Extension of PTO Use Exception

To provide staff more time to use their accrued PTO, university leadership has authorized the Office of Human Resources to extend the temporary exception to the university’s Paid Time Off Policy to December 31, 2022 for PTO that normally would have rolled into a staff member’s bank of RSD from April 1, 2020 – December 31, 2022. Affected PTO not used by a staff member’s PTO anniversary date subsequent to December 31, 2022 will be converted back to the staff member’s bank of RSD after that PTO anniversary date.
