WRH-Information relating to Part Time OPSEU Vacation Bank Payout

For Part Time OPSEU staff who previously accrued vacation and received a payout for June 8, 2017:

The vacation accruals that were paid out on June 8, 2017 were what was in your vacation bank as of April 21, 2017.  We chose that date as it is a pay end date and May 1 was in the middle of a pay period.  There is a difference as to what was showing on your last pay statement for vacation accruals and what was paid out as a result of using the April 21 date.  In the system, the change to stop any accruals was not made until after May 1, so anytime accrued between April 21 and May 1 and appeared on your vacation accruals needed to be subtracted from the vacation payout amounts.   Also, if any paid vacation time was taken between April 21 and May 19 and paid, this amount was subtracted from your payout.  Next year’s Vacation payouts will be calculated starting April 22nd, 2017 to ensure all hours worked are accounted for.
