Holiday Leave

Holiday leave is a paid leave available to regular employees for the observance of certain holidays, in accordance with the University's official holiday calendar. Eligible regular employees earn 14 days of Holiday Leave per year, 15 in a year of a general or Congressional election.

It is important to note that there are certain holidays which are observed by the State of Maryland, but are taken at times other than the observance date for University of Maryland Employees. For example in 2011, President's Day is observed/earned by the State of Maryland on February 21, 2011; however the University is open on this day and observes President's Day on December 27, 2011 so that we may have a longer winter break. If your hire date was after the earned date, then on the University's observance date, you must either work that day, or take annual or personal leave

Personal Leave

Eligible employees are granted 3 Personal Leave days per calendar year, to be used for any purpose. Nonexempt requires prior approval of the supervisor; exempt requires the supervisor be provided prior notification. Please note that only 12-month regular faculty earns personal leave. Please read leave policy for details.

Sick Leave

Sick leave is paid leave granted to regular employees in an effort to provide some protection against the loss of earnings due to absences for certain health and related reasons. A full-time regular employee earns sick leave at the rate of 15 days per year (4 hours and 37 minutes each pay period). Please note that sick leave earning for 9-month faculty is prorated based on an academic year. Please read leave policy for details.
