University Staff Must Use Specific Leave Balances by December 31.

For University Staff employees, the deadline to use vacation carryover, legal holiday, and personal holiday hours is December 31, 2022.

  • If the hours from those banks are not used by December 31, 2022, they will be lost.
  • As a reminder, December 31 is a holiday, so employees who are working that day, or it’s their regularly scheduled day off, also need to use that time off in advance or they will lose it.

If you have specific questions on your leave balances, please talk with your supervisor, review Kronos, and/or reach out to University Housing Payroll & Benefits at payroll@housing.wisc.edu.
