Leave Conversion to Bi-Weekly

Employees at Marshall earn two types of leave benefits, Annual and Sick Leave. It is provided with pay to all benefits-eligible employees excluding nine-month faculty.

Beginning May 1st, we will be converting leave to accrue bi-weekly in conjunction with the bi-weekly pay schedule. You will see the accrual on the Wednesday following the Friday pay period.

Current Leave System:

Annual Leave Accrual Rates

The chart below shows the maximum number of hours allowed to be carried in annual leave. Once the employee reaches the maximum number of hours, they will not earn any additional annual leave until they use annual leave and fall below the maximum number allowed.

AL Hours Earned Each Pay Maximum Hours Allowed
1-5 Years of Service 4.327 AL hours 225 hours
5-10 Years of Service 5.193 AL hours 270 hours
10-15 Years of Service 6.058 AL hours 315 hours
15+ Years of Service 6.924 AL hours 360 hours
Non-Classified Employees 6.924 AL hours 360 hours
  • Employees who are benefits eligible and work less than full-time (between 20 and 37.5 hours per week) accumulate annual leave on a pro-rated basis.

Sick Leave Accrual Rates

  • All full-time employees and 12-month faculty (excluding nine-month faculty) accumulate sick leave
      • 11.250 hours/1.50 days/month (18 days/year)
      • Other benefits-eligible employees accumulate sick leave on a pro-rated basis
      • There is no limit to the number of sick leave days an employee may accumulate

With the conversion to bi-weekly, leave accruals will now be divided by 26 pays instead of the previous 24.  To view how your leave accruals will change, you will select your years of service below.
