Update: Vacation Maximum Grace Period Exception

Included below are updates to last months’ Vacation Maximum Grace Period Exception newsletter article.

  • The UCPath system is currently being modified to allow PTO earning employees who are approaching or at accrual max to be granted a grace period exception through December 31, 2020. This change is expected to be implemented retroactive to June 1 at the end of September. PTO earners do not need to submit a Vacation/PTO Accrual Extension Form; the grace period max will be automatic.
  • Academic employees are not eligible for the Vacation/PTO Maximum Grace Period Exception. Employees who have previously accrued above their maximum will maintain those balances but will not accrue until they are below their allowed maximum.
  • Represented employees are not covered under the UC Office of the President’s temporary program and will need to complete the Vacation/PTO Accrual Extension Form and obtain approvals prior to submitting to the Payroll Office for Processing. The UCPath system enforces the vacation max rules specific to each bargained contract.
