Faculty appointed on an academic year basis with a contract pay frequency do not accrue vacation and sick hours like staff and 12-month faculty. However, they may be eligible for a sick leave benefit. For more information on faculty accrual eligibility, contact the chairperson or head of your department. In addition, employees and payroll liaisons may review faculty vacation and sick leave benefit eligibility, based on job code, on the Employee Services website in the section titled Benefits Eligibility Matrix. Please also consult the Compensation and Leave page of the Faculty Handbook.
