Avoid Losing Accrued Annual (Vacation) Leave
There are two significant dates on the leave system that control separate functions. Depending on an individual's employment history, these dates may or may not be the same. Explanations of the dates are given below.
PLEASE NOTE: Any leave voluntarily accrued prior to the anniversary month, beyond the 240 hour maximum, must be used prior to the beginning of the ANNIVERSARY MONTH or it will be lost.
Leave balances can be found by signing in to MyCWU, selecting "Content", and then checking the "Employee Leave Summary" check box under CWU Dashboard.
It is your responsibility to monitor your leave balances and know your leave anniversary month. If you have questions about your anniversary month or annual leave balance, please be sure to resolve them before reaching the 240 hour maximum.
Questions concerning leave balances and anniversary dates should be directed to the timekeeper in your department. Policy or procedural questions may be directed to your Human Resource Consultant (see Contacts or call 963-1202).
Washington Administrative Code and the Bargaining Agreements permit employees to donate some of their vacation leave to a fellow employee participating in the shared leave program. For more information on shared leave, contact your area representative in the Human Resources Office, or visit the HR website: here.
