Article II. Vacation Leave

Section 03.04.210 Employees Entitled

  1. Seasonal employees and temporary employees are not entitled to vacation leave.
  2. An employee is not credited with vacation leave in a particular pay period unless in paid status for at least eighty percent of that period; except, new employees and those who terminate continuous active service during a pay period accrue vacation leave pro rata.
  3. Employees granted leave of absence with pay continue to accrue vacation leave during leave of absence.
  4. Employees terminated or laid off for reasons not discreditable to them, and employees granted leave of absence without pay, do not accumulate vacation leave during said termination, layoff or leave of absence, but upon resumption of active employment their prior service is included in computing the rate of vacation leave. Such employee, however, may not take or receive payment for vacation leave until he again qualifies for vacation leave as a new employee as provided in subsection (E) of this section. The records of the personnel department and civil service commission are used to establish prior service credit.
  5. Employees serving a probationary period on an original appointment accrue vacation leave but no such probationary employee who leaves City service without satisfactory completion of the probationary period, nor any employee who leaves without satisfactory completion of one year of continuous active service, is entitled to vacation leave or to compensation for any accrued vacation leave.
