The Board of Trustees recently approved a short-term modification of vacation carryover limits in University Rules to allow a temporary increase in the permitted carryover of accrued and unused vacation time. The temporary modification applies to exempt twelve-month employees and to non-exempt, non-bargaining unit staff, and will allow employees additional time to utilize accrued and unused vacation time that was accumulated during the pandemic. The Office of Human Resources and Payroll will conduct a one-time review of accrued and unused vacation time for employees who may be eligible, to determine whether an employee’s accrued and unused vacation time on June 30, 2021, is in excess of the limitations established by these Rules. Employees will have until June 30, 2023, to utilize any additional vacation carryover allowed under the temporary modification.
EmpCenter is programmed to deduct excess vacation on June 30 automatically. Those eligible for the temporary additional carryover will have their balances manually updated by Human Resources after timesheets for the week of June 28-July 4 are submitted by the employee and approved by their supervisor. Updates to vacation balances will begin on Thursday, July 8, and are expected to be complete by Monday, July 12.
Timesheet instructions for Juneteenth can be found here.
As announced on June 2, 2021, all staff, contract professionals, and non-bargaining unit faculty are eligible to request an FWA. (Please note that further discussions are pending with Akron-AAUP regarding bargaining unit faculty eligibility).
In order to enable an orderly implementation, the following timeline has been established:
The FWA policy is ongoing, and new FWAs or changes to existing FWAs may be requested at any time. The implementation timeline serves as a guide for initial implementation to correspond with the physical return of employees to campus following the COVID-19 pandemic.
More: Forms, resources and additional information about FWA and returning to campus.
Human Resources has amended the Separation Clearance process to be 100% online. This process ensures all employees separating from employment return University property, are notified of their responsibilities and are provided payroll clearance.
Upon receipt of a separation personnel action form, Human Resources will initiate an electronic process to ensure the exiting employee clears all outstanding obligations to the University before separation.
The supervisor of the separating employee will receive an email notification that includes a prompt to complete their portion of the electronic clearance form, which authorizes departmental payroll clearance.
For more details on this process, please see our Separation page in the Hiring, Separation and Personnel Actions tab. Direct any questions regarding this process to Lissia Gerber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
