President Roderick J. McDavis recently approved a number of policies related to personnel issues. Topics and details are as follows:
A new policy, Ohio University policy 41.090, establishes retirement eligibility criteria for university employees and differentiates these criteria from those of other state retirement systems.
According to Linda Lonsinger, interim associate vice president for finance and administration for human resources, the policy details when an employee is eligible for retirement and codifies existing university practices. The policy applies to all separations from the university for which the last day of work is on or after July 1, 2007.

Changes to Ohio University policy 40.027, which outlines procedures for administrative employees to have the use of three sick leave days as personal days per year, have been approved.
The revised policy allows administrative employees to use personal leave in one-hour increments, instead of the minimum of one-quarter day that the previous policy indicated. It also eliminates a sentence indicating that University Human Resources is responsible for notifying all planning units of employees who are eligible for personal days.

A revised version of Ohio University policy 41.001, which provides a standard vacation policy for full-time administrative presidential appointees holding fiscal year appointments, also has been approved.
The most prominent addition to the policy is updated references to the request for paid time off form, which had not been created when the old policy was approved. The revised policy also emphasizes that eligible employees can carry a maximum balance of 54 days of vacation time throughout the fiscal year.
