For your planning, please be aware that the vacation rollover deadline for 2019 is the last pay period of the calendar year (December 1 – December 14) for the pay check dated December 20. As you plan for the upcoming holiday season, please remember that the cut off for vacation rollover is December 14 and any balance over the maximum limit will be swept at that time. Leave balances are shown on your pay check voucher and you can also check with your supervisor or department time keeper if you are unsure of your leave balance. 2020 Holiday Schedule

If you would like to make a change to your tax withholding; fill out a new 2019 W-4 form and return to Payroll via fax 819-3697.
