Vacation Purchase Progran

Professional Librarians, Administrative staff and secretary/clerical union members may opt to purchase additional vacation time during Open Enrollment. The details of the plan are as follows:

  • Purchased days can be from 1 to 5 days in the calendar year. They can only be purchased in increments of a full day schedule.
  • The cost of each additional purchased vacation day is determined by your base salary as of Open Enrollment. If your salary changes, your deductions will automatically be adjusted.
  • The purchase of additional time is on a pre-tax basis. The cost of the additional time will be deducted in each pay period over the course of a year.
  • Days purchased through this plan must be used within the calendar year; they may not be carried forward into the next year nor can they be reimbursed if not used.
  • All carry forward and earned vacation time must be used before purchased time can be used.
  • Use of purchased time is subject to approval by the manager in the same manner as regular vacation time.
  • If an employee leaves employment before using the time, the amount deducted will be reimbursed as taxable income.
  • If an employee leaves after using purchased time and deductions for purchased time have not been completed, the balance will be deducted from the final pay.
