Temporary Vacation Accrual Increase Ends June 30

Section 1

May 5, 2022

Dear colleagues:

On June 1, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, vacation accrual maximums for policy-covered employees, as specified in UC’s Absence from Work Policy (PPSM-2.210), were temporarily lifted to allow employees more time to use their accrued vacation leave. 

The temporary change was effective through June 30, 2022 per presidential order. We have been advised that the change will not be extended beyond this date. Starting July 1, 2022, policy-covered employees who are over their maximum vacation leave accrual limit will no longer accrue additional vacation leave until they bring their vacation leave balance below their maximum.

If you are over your maximum vacation leave accrual and wish to accrue vacation leave as of July 1, please work with your manager to request approved vacation leave and bring your accrual down to below the maximum limit prior to June 30. 

This change applies to policy-covered employees, including those that earn PTO. This information does not apply to represented employees. 

For more information, please visit the UCOP Personnel Policies for Staff Members web page. 


If you have questions, please contact your Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) or your local Human Resources professional.
