Update on Vacation Carryover for CSEA and PEF Employees

Memorandums of Agreement (MOAs) between GOER and the CSEA and PEF Unions have been signed to grant relief from contractual limits on vacation maximums because of staffing needs resulting from the State’s response to the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19.

The MOAs allows eligible employees, CSEA and PEF, to carry vacation credits in excess of the 40-day maximum that would otherwise be forfeited on April 1, 2020 until December 31, 2020.  

An employee is eligible for the extension, if they are engaged in the response efforts or unable to utilize vacation leave due to ongoing response efforts.

Any unused excess vacation credits as of the close of business on December 31, 2020 will be forfeited by employees. This doesn’t impact accruals earned after April 1, 2020, which will be subject to normal rules.

There is no action required on part of the employee to have the vacation credits in excess for the 40 days carried over to the December 31, 2020 deadline.
