May 13, 2022   |   Back to News Updated Use or Lose Deadlines - Executive Branch The following message from HRD details the updated Use or Lose deadlines for the Executive Branch. 
 

To: Executive Department Employees
From: Jeff McCue, Chief Human Resources Officer
Date: May 11, 2022
Subject: Updates to Use or Lose Deadlines
 
I am sharing updated use or lose deadlines for vacation and personal time for managers and bargaining unit employees. These use or lose deadlines have been adjusted periodically throughout the pandemic to strike a fair balance for our employees who may have been unable to utilize time-off due to agency operational needs or travel restrictions.
 
These updated deadlines are detailed in the attached PDF through 2026. The deadlines have been shared with Executive Department leadership and Secretariat Human Resources officers and provide a gradual return to normal over the next few years.
 
Of particular note are use or lose deadlines for accruals during calendar years 2020 and 2021 which have deadlines most quickly approaching.  Please note: personal time does NOT roll over from year to year as a part of this plan. 
 
 
  The use or lose deadlines for calendar years 2022 thru 2026 have been updated to allow for gradual return to normal in 2026. See specific dates in attached PDFNo action is necessary – employees will be notified of any at-risk balances in advance of each use or lose deadline.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jeff McCue
Assistant Secretary and Chief Human Resources Officer
