You will be credited with one hour of annual leave for every 15 hours worked during the year of employment. At the fifth year of employment, annual leave is earned at the rate of one hour for every 11 hours worked. Annual leave may be taken at any point after you have accrued it, with your supervisor’s prior approval, or it will be paid to you after you have worked the number of hours allotted to you.
You are entitled to receive sick leave if you work 500 or more hours in a fiscal year. You will be credited with one hour of sick leave for every 20 hours worked.

Unused sick leave may be accrued from year to year without limitation.
