Managing Staff Vacation Balances

Timely utilization of vacation by employees is an integral component of maintaining work life balance. It also reduces the impact of overly long vacations, large payouts and it reduces the University’s overall vacation liability. To meet these goals the University of Alberta is committed to the principle that vacation time should be utilized by its employees on an annual basis. Human Resource Services supports this principle by providing guidance and support to Faculties and Departments on vacation management and advises them on how to eliminate all substantial vacation balances in excess of one year’s accrual.
