The University does not recognize prior employment at Federal or District agencies, or any other employer, in determining length of service for annual leave accrual rates. It does recognize prior regular or extended temporary employment at Gallaudet. Annual leave may not be borrowed in advance. Except in emergency situations, annual leave must be requested and approved in advance by the supervisor.
Faculty members who have not accrued annual leave and who are transferred to staff status within their division are credited with a bank account of one day of annual leave for every full year of continuous service at Gallaudet up the maximum allowable annual leave carryover limit. Prior service is not recognized when establishing the bank of annual leave.
