An employee cannot work due to a layoff of 30 calendar days or less, or at the request of a supervisor or department head.
An employee cannot travel to work due to adverse weather (even though the campus is open) or cannot work due to adverse working conditions or facilities.
An employee is receiving Worker’s Compensation payment supplemented by paid time off benefits.
An employee is serving military duty. This additional accrual is limited to vacation or PTO and is equal to the amount that the person would have earned had the military leave of absence not occurred, up to a maximum of one year's additional accrual. The rules on the maximum usage of vacation or PTO in a year will continue to apply.
