Vacation Leave 

Full-time Employees and Part-time eligible Employees

State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota provides vacation leave in accordance with the State Board of Community College guidelines.

Vacation Leave
Twelve-month full-time/part-time eligible employees will accrue vacation leave for each month or major fraction of a calendar month of service. For example, if you begin working in your benefit eligible position on the 18th of the month, that would not be the major fraction of the month and you would not earn vacation leave for that month. The monthly vacation rate will be according to the following schedule:

Hours Earned per Month
  12-Month Personnel Executive & Administrative Personnel Senior Management Personnel
First month through fifth year of employment

1 day

Not to exceed the rate of 1.84 days per month

Not to exceed the rate of 2.5 days per month

First month of sixth year through tenth year of employment

1 ¼ days

Not to exceed the rate of 1.84 days per month

Not to exceed the rate of 2.5 days per month

First month of eleventh year and beyond

1 ½ days

Not to exceed the rate of 1.84 days per month

Not to exceed the rate of 2.5 days per month

Maximums
Accumulated vacation leave rolls over each year. The maximum you can receive or carry over is 60 days for Senior Management personnel, and 44 days for all other personnel. (This is based on a calendar year).  Excess days over the max will be distributed as follows: five (5) days vacation pay will be rolled into SCF's Bencor Special Pay Plan. Any remaining vacation balance beyond the allowable maximum accrual will be transferred to sick leave (VSIC). Use of vacation leave must be pre-approved.

Vacation Leave Payout
At time of separation, the payout on vacation time is 100% of the balance not to exceed 60 days Senior Management / 44 days Executive and Administrative personnel / 30 days for all other personnel. Payout of vacation leave does not apply to employees in grant funded positions. If your leave payout is at least $2,500 or more, that money will be sent to our Bencor 401(a) Special Pay Plan. (For more information on BENCOR's website, please click here.)

Previous service at a Florida Community College
Employees who have accrued vacation time at another Florida community college are eligible to receive a "vacation benefit based on length of that service."  In other words, employees can have the "time" (not days) transferred to SCF so that they will receive "credit."  For example, if they had 3 years at another Florida community college and transferred "time/credit" they would start accruing 1 ¼ days per month after only 2 years and 1 ½ days per month after only 7 years.

*Please note*
Increments are given in the last paycheck of each month and cannot be used prior to that date.  Employees must work the major portion of a month to receive vacation increment.

Paid Holidays
The college is closed for major U.S. holidays. Please see the Holidays and Other Paid Non-Duty Days Rule for specific holidays.
