Annual and sick leave accrual and retirement


Q. I am retiring Nov. 30, which is the 24th pay period of 2012. Will I earn the eight hours of annual leave and four hours of sick leave during this pay period since I am retiring before Dec. 1, which is technically the last day of the pay period?

A. As long as you retire at the close of business Nov. 30, you’d be entitled to any annual and sick leave you earned during that pay period.
