Synopsis

This policy

  • Provides brief historical information on the Personal Leave Program (PLP).
  • Describes appropriate use of remaining PLP and furlough hours.
  • Outlines previously implemented PLP, including duration and accrual information.

 

Introduction

PLP was established July 1, 1992, to achieve savings in employee salary costs during a fiscal crisis.  In 2003, 2010, and 2012, PLP was reinitiated to assist in achieving budget savings to improve the state’s ability to meet its financial obligations.  Executive Order S-15-10 was issued implementing various aspects of PLP, but the program was subject to change through collective bargaining which affected the start and end dates of each implementation.

Statement

Effective July 1, 2013, mandatory PLP ended.  While the program is no longer in effect, departments are required to comply with existing PLP requirements.  Departments must continue to monitor and ensure that all accrued unused PLP 2010 and 2012 hours are exhausted prior to voluntary separation, termination, layoff, separation from state service (e.g., retirement), or other personnel actions such as rejection on probation or dismissal.  PLP 2012 hours should be used first, followed by PLP 2010 and furlough hours.  PLP hours should be used before vacation, annual leave, personal holiday, holiday credit, and compensating time off (CTO), but employees must obtain supervisory approval before using PLP or furlough hours in lieu of sick leave.

Whenever feasible, an employee’s separation date should be extended to ensure PLP 2012, PLP 2010, and furlough hours are exhausted prior to separation.  In instances where an employee’s separation date is scheduled in advance or at the employer’s discretion, such as layoff or termination, departments must require employees to use all unused PLP 2012, PLP 2010 and furlough hours prior to separation.  Employees must be directed to take time off from work to use these hours without exception and shall not be permitted to refuse to use accrued PLP 2012, PLP 2010, or furlough hours.

On rare occasions when an employee separates from state service and has accumulated PLP 2012 and/or PLP 2010 hours which cannot be used prior to separation, these unused hours must be paid at the time of the employee’s separation.

Application

Not Applicable.
