Staff members must use extra vacation days by June 30

Case Western Reserve University staff members are reminded they can carry over as much vacation time as they accrue in one year (i.e. an employee earning 128 hours per year—or 16 days—can carry over 128 hours). Any balance of hours over the yearly accrual amount must be used by June 30 or it will be lost.

The number of vacation hours earned per month is based on an employee’s salary grade, number of hours worked per week and length of service. View the vacation days calculation chart on the Human Resources vacation policy page for information on how much time an employee earns per year.

Staff members also are reminded they receive one floating holiday per fiscal year that also must be used by June 30. If unused, the floating holiday will not roll over to the following year. New staff members are eligible to use their floating holiday upon completion of their orientation period.

Any employee who needs assistance calculating their vacation balance should contact the Department of Human Resources at
