Topic/Discussion Title:


Discussion and Direction on Revisions to Policy 4-200- Leave Practices



Description:  In consideration of the operational disruptions caused by COVID-19 emergency response that precluded customary vacation approvals and the unwavering commitment of SLCO employees, all Vacation-eligible employees that performed work related to COVID-19 response for at least 90 days during 2020, shall be allowed to rollover an additional 80 hours of accrued, but unused vacation (up to 400 hours total) into 2021. The intention is to look to Elected Officials to define those Employees in their Agencies whose contributions should be covered by this benefit extension. This proposal was brought before the Steering Committee to seek input.  The Steering Committee voted to amend the proposal, as such: To allow all Employees to roll-over all accrued 2020 vacation through 12/31/22.  At that time, the rollover would revert back to Policy 4-200’s 320 hours maximum. Seeking Council’s support of a revision of Policy 4-200 Leave Practices to address this issue.  Next steps will be to draft language for legal review and Council approval.
