Your ‘leave accrual rate' is the amount of leave you earn each month. The type of leave earned and rate, is based on your collective bargaining unit and your appointment.
Article 24 of the current faculty contract provides a full-time employee with eight (8) hours of credit for sick leave with pay after completion of one academic qualifying pay period.
Faculty with an academic year appointment do not earn vacation leave. Per Article 34 of the current faculty contract only full-time ten (10) month and twelve (12) month faculty unit employees will earn two (2) days vacation credit for each qualifying month of service.
Eligible faculty who work less than full time receive sick and/or vacation credit on a pro rata basis.
For more information, please refer to the current collective bargaining agreement.

As stated in Title 5, §42726 (c), a MPP employee shall accumulate 8 hours of credit for sick leave with pay following completion of one month of continuous service. Thereafter for each additional calendar month of service, one day of credit for sick leave with pay shall be allowed. Sick leave may be accumulated without limit. Each MPP employee may be required by the appointing power to provide proof satisfactory to the appointing power of the necessity of taking sick leave.
As stated in Title 5, §42726 (b), a MPP employee shall accumulate vacation at a rate of 2 days per qualifying pay period and may accumulate vacation in an amount not to exceed 384 working hours for 10 or less years of qualifying service and 440 working hours for more than 10 years of qualifying service. Any vacation which the appointing power allows to accumulate beyond the maximum shall be taken in the first quarter of the next calendar year. Vacation shall be taken as directed or authorized by the appointing power and shall be scheduled by mutual agreement whenever possible.
Upon employee request, non-represented employees are entitled to a lump sum payment upon separation from service, for any unused accumulated vacation. Vacation payments should be computed by projecting the accumulated time on a calendar basis so that the lump sum amount will equal the amount which the employee would have been paid had he/she taken the time off, but not separated from service. This policy change also eliminates prior restrictions on the employee's return to CSU employment.
