USPS employees may be advanced vacation leave

USPS employees are not eligible for the four personal leave days, but they may be required to use vacation or accrued compensatory leave during the holiday closing period if a department chooses to close or upon supervisory request.  In the event a USPS employee does not have vacation leave to cover the period, he or she may request that vacation leave be advanced to cover that absence, in which case the department is obligated to approve it. USPS employees who do not wish to be advanced vacation leave may use leave without pay during this time, in keeping with University of Florida policy.

As in the past, USPS employees who wish to be advanced vacation leave for Dec. 27-30 should report all vacation leave usage in a timely manner through the Elapsed Timesheet in the myUFL system. The system will allow vacation leave balances to become negative for USPS employees during Dec. 27-30. The system will automatically prohibit vacation leave usage after Jan. 12, 2017, until the vacation leave balance is positive again.

If you have further questions, please contact Leave Administration at or (352) 392-2477.
