If you have unused TEAMS or faculty personal leave days or a USPS personal holiday, now is the time to use those days. USPS personal holidays and TEAMS/faculty personal leave days will expire if they are not used by the end of the pay period in which June 30 (the end of the fiscal year) occurs. The last day to use your personal days for 2016-2017 is June 30.
You can use myUFL to determine whether you have personal leave time to be used by following this navigation: My Self Service>Payroll and Compensation>UF Leave History. Select the most recent pay period end date by clicking on it in the drop-down box. USPS employees should look for an ending balance for USPS Hol to determine if they have the 2016-2017 personal holiday available to them. TEAMS and faculty employees should look for TMSFacPer and check the ending balance. If there is a balance, it should be used by June 30.
What is a personal holiday?
A personal holiday is a one-day holiday awarded to USPS employees each fiscal year. It must be taken in a full-day increment.
What are personal leave days?
TEAMS/faculty personal leave days are the four days awarded to TEAMS employees and faculty members during the UF holiday closing period that occurs annually during Dec. 26-31. If you were off from work Dec. 26-31, 2016, you likely have received your personal leave benefit. If you were considered essential and required to work part or all of the holiday closing period of Dec. 26-31, 2016, your record should reflect a personal leave balance for use by the end of the pay period in which the fiscal year end occurs (June 30, 2017).
Personal days are provided in addition to any sick or vacation leave that is accrued. Sick and vacation leave does not expire at the end of the fiscal year.
