AM - ALRA Eligibility/Election Summary Report
Twelve-month faculty, academic staff, and/or limited employees with a 12-month appointment are eligible to bank into an Annual Leave Reserve Account (ALRA) after they have completed 10 or more fiscal years of continuous employment. Banking of leave comes from the vacation balance or the vacation carryover balance on June 30th. Beginning with the 11th fiscal year, an employee is “eligible” to bank up to 40 hours of vacation or vacation carryover. The option to bank vacation is offered immediately following the fiscal year in which an employee is eligible. Beginning with the 25th fiscal year, an employee is “eligible” to bank up to 80 hours of vacation or vacation carryover. The option to bank vacation is offered immediately following the fiscal year in which an employee is eligible. Example: If you complete 10 years of service anywhere between July 2016 and June 2017, you are “eligible” effective July 1, 2017. You will not be offered the election to bank until July of 2018.
Any hours placed in the Annual Leave Reserve Account (ALRA) do not expire and can be used at any time or paid out upon termination or retirement.
Employees should review their July Leave Report, it will indicate the employee's ALRA eligibility. The employee will need to complete the ALRA request section at the bottom of the July Leave Report to indicate he/she wants to place vacation time into ALRA. Employees utilizing ESS, will be allowed to entry their election directly on their Absence Request page.
The report contains all active employees that are eligible to bank Vacation to ALRA for this year. The report also indicates how much the employee has elected and it can be run multiple times: once for eligibility, and again for who has made an election.
If an employee has more than one employee record, all records will appear on the report. However, the amount of ALRA that the person is eligible to bank is not prorated between the records. For example: An employee with an ALRA counter of 140 has Empl Record 0 and Empl Record 1. The column ‘Max Avail ALRA Elig for Employee’ will show 40 hours for each record. In this case the employee is eligible to bank a total of 40 hours; the hours can be distributed between the two records as the employee elects.
The annual ALRA eligibility and election information will also included on the employees’ July Unclassified Leave Report.
