Annual leave


Q. I’m a law enforcement officer and will be subject to mandatory retirement on Jan. 31, 2014. Is there any recourse to not using annual use-or-lose leave by the Jan. 11 cutoff and extending it until Jan. 31, thus cashing out the 240 hours plus what I’m earning in 2013 (approximately 448)?

A. No.
