T42 and unused annual leave


Q. My T42 appointment is expiring Sept. 30. The original appointment was for more than a year, but a recent extension was for 90 days. Will I be paid for unused annual leave, or should I take it before Sept. 30?

A. Not only isn’t there any requirement that accrued annual leave be taken before an employee is separated, but taking terminal leave is prohibited. Instead, you’ll receive a lump-sum payment for any unused annual leave.
