2018 Holiday Schedule

Vacation and Sick Leave

EHRA (Exempt from the Human Resources Act) Non-Faculty

EHRA Non-Faculty Tier II Employees are entitled to 24 days of vacation leave and 12 days of sick leave per calendar year. The amount of annual leave is adjusted proportionately for part-time employees in covered positions who work half-time (50% FTE) or more. Leave is earned on a monthly basis. The monthly earnings amount is equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the annual leave accrual rate for each month the employee works or is on approved leave with pay at least half the working days of a month.

The Chancellor, Provost, Vice Chancellors and others who are classified as EHRA non-faculty Tier I senior academic and administrative officers are entitled to 26 days of vacation leave and 12 days of sick leave per calendar year.

SHRA (Subject to the Human Resources Act)

Permanent employees regularly scheduled to work 20 or more hours and who are in pay status for at least one-half of the days in a month are eligible to earn leave.  Full-time permanent, probationary, or time-limited employees earn vacation leave based on length of total State service as shown below. Part-time employees who work half-time or more earn prorated leave. Sick leave is earned at 8 hours per month (prorated for part-time employees who work half-time or more.)

Leave Programs Available

In addition to vacation and sick leave, various other leaves are available to employees who qualify including Family and Medical Leave, Civil Leave and Military Leave. For more information http://hr.unca.edu/policies.
