Per article 27.2 on Personal Discretionary Leave in the SVEA contract, the following procedures have been established for requesting Personal Leave immediately before or after a holiday or vacation. Up to five (5) employees may be granted discretionary leave the day before or after a holiday or vacation period. These discretionary leaves will be granted on a first come/first served basis when requested through these established procedures.
Important Note: It is the employee's responsibility to ensure they have an adequate Discretionary Personal Leave balance (in Skyward Employee Access) before making a request. If the request for leave is approved and it is later determined that the employee does note have an adequate available Discretionary Personal Leave balance, any days taken will be processed as "unpaid leave."
