Viewing Leave Balances and Accrual Rates

This article covers how employees can view their leave balances and leave accrual rates.

Viewing your available leave balances can help you track your available sick leave, vacation leave, personal holiday, compensatory time, and state service.

The Graduated Vacation Chart shows how much leave you accrue each month based on your years of service.
