Annual Leave Rollover
Maximum rollover for annual leave accruing employees is 352 hours (except Executive Service - 480 hours). All annual leave hours over 352 will be converted to sick leave effective January 1, 2019. To assure accurate rollover processing, all outstanding timesheets and leave reports reporting hours and leave through December 31, 2018 should be submitted and approved prior to Tuesday, December 18, 2018.
Any outstanding leave reports must be submitted and approved to accurately reflect your leave balances in preparation for year-end leave rollover. If you have leave reports that may be past the date to submit and/or approve electronically, please contact Nicole Zamary at 474-2608 for assistance.
Employees with more than the year-end maximum of 352 hours should make plans to schedule use of annual leave, with supervisory approval, as soon as possible. The last day to use accrued leave before the Winter Holiday will be Thursday, December 20, 2018. If you have questions regarding leave, please contact Jeff Comeau at 474-2610.
Minimum Wage Increase - January 1, 2019
Effective Tuesday, January 1, 2019, the Florida minimum wage will increase to $8.46 per hour. Human Resources will process pay increases for all hourly OPS student and OPS staff employees whose hourly wages are below that amount effective Monday, January 1, 2019. Departments do not need to prepare Personnel Action Forms for these increases. A Report of Personnel Action documenting these increases will be forwarded to the affected departments after the change is processed. If you have questions, please contact Nicole Zamary at 474-2608 or Carol Gentry at 474-2605. All job postings in PA7 with wages lower than $8.46 per hour will be revised by Human Resources by the January 1, 2019, deadline. For all future job postings, the department is responsible for entering a wage that is compliant with the new minimum wage requirement.
