Use-or-lose leave


Q. I have scheduled my use-or-lose leave and have been approved. If I am not able to use it at the time it is scheduled, will I be able to use it in January after the cut off time to use your use-or-lose?

A. Only if your scheduled and approved annual leave was canceled by management because of an exigency of the public business or because you were ill.
