UA Improves Annual Leave Accrual for Non-Exempt Employees

  • January 17th, 2023

As part of the University’s commitment to improving human resources systems through its HReimagined initiative, regular, benefits-eligible non-exempt employees are now able to accrue more leave earlier in their service with UA and reach the maximum accrual sooner as well.

“The enhancement to accrued annual leave for our non-exempt employees was wholeheartedly endorsed by President Stuart Bell and Vice President for Finance and Operations Matt Fajack, and I am grateful to them for their leadership and support,” said Susan Norton, senior associate vice president for human resources and chief human resources officer.

The enhanced annual leave accrual will take place immediately. Detailed annual leave accrual comparison charts are available for review on the HR website. The new accrual schedule can also be found on page 24 of the Employee Handbook.

Regular, benefits-eligible non-exempt employees with two or more years of service will see the change of accruals on their paychecks issued Jan. 27.
