Carrying over annual leave

Carrying over annual leave from one leave year to the next - and actioning that carry-over on iTrent (updated 05/07/21)

Carrying over annual leave

The University's normal policy is that the number of hours of annual leave staff could carry over to the next leave year is a maximum of 36.5 hours (5-days), pro-rated for part time staff.

In recognition of the difficulty that some staff are experiencing in trying to take their full leave allowance, for this year only (for the 2020/21 into 2021/22 leave year) the University has exceptionally agreed that staff who have not been on furlough during 2020/21 annual leave year, may carry over up to a maximum of 73 hours (10 days) (i.e. an additional 5 days / 36.5 hours pro-rata) into the next year of holiday entitlement, pro-rated for part time staff.

This process is being managed centrally so that iTrent will adjust the leave balance after the end of the 2020/21 leave year for any carry over up to the maximum allowed. You do not need to do anything, the balance for each eligible member of staff will be adjusted on 6 and 7 September 2021 so the updated figure should show in the staff member's iTrent record from 8 September 2021 onwards.
