Approval to roll over unused 2012 Vacation Days

A Reminder!   All managers and supervisors with vacation approval authority using our Vacation Tracking spreadsheets are reminded that you have until the end of the day on Friday, September 14, 2012 to authorize rolling over up to five (5) days of unused vacation for full time employees and up to twenty (20) hours of unused vacation time for part time employees.  You  will enter and approve this information for each employee directly on the TOTAL tab of your tracking spreadsheet.  We need this information completed so that we can prepare the 2012-2013 vacation spreadsheets.    During the week of September 17, 2012, we will lock out the current (2011-2012) spreadsheets so all roll over approvals must be approved before 9/15/2012.  You can expect to have the 2013 vacation spreadsheets available for use during the week of October 1, 2012.
