Administrators (Salaried)

Payroll systems will not grant vacation time accrual to administrators on their December 31 paycheck who have one or more years of continuous service as of December 25. Those administrators with less than one continuous year of service as of December 25, will accrue a vacation day for the December 31 pay. This means that salaried Administrators do not need to submit paid time off in MPI: Absence Management for the fourth day to use vacation as required.
