Title 2 . Administration
Chapter 8 . Public Information
Section 60. Mandatory use of personal leave

2 AAC 08.060. Mandatory use of personal leave

(a) At least five days of personal leave must be used each leave year. Employees and supervisors will be advised by the employee's payroll office on or before November 16 of each year how many days of leave must be used to fulfill the five-day minimum requirement. For the purpose of this subsection, "personal leave" means paid leave or authorized leave without pay; it does not include disciplinary leave without pay and unauthorized leave without pay.

(b) If the employee does not schedule the mandatory five days' leave or remainder of it, the employee's supervisor may direct that the appropriate amount of leave be used to satisfy the five-day requirement.

(c) If at the end of the leave year the employee has failed to use the five days of leave required, the difference between five days and the amount of personal leave actually used and its cash value will be deducted from the leave account and cash value balances. No payment will be made to the employee for the leave that was deducted.

(d) Notwithstanding the provisions of (c) of this section, the unused portion of the mandatory five-days' leave will not be deducted from the leave account and cash value balances if the employee's department or agency head certifies in writing that the employee was denied the opportunity to use mandatory leave.

(e) When an employee changes employment or changes to a new bargaining unit resulting in a change from annual and sick leave to a personal leave plan, or from personal leave to an annual and sick leave plan, the employee will be subject to the mandatory leave usage provisions of the unit in which employed at the end of the leave year.

(f) An employee under a leave plan requiring the use of more than five days of mandatory leave each year, who changes to a leave plan requiring only five days of mandatory leave each year will not receive a refund of, or payment for, leave used in excess of the mandatory requirement.

(g) Repealed 10/16/87.

(h) Leave cashed in under the authority of this chapter or a collective bargaining agreement does not reduce the five-day mandatory leave requirement.
