Annual and S eave


Pamphlet 38 Do.
DECEMBER 1954 IiAY 1;; I.




for Federal,


This pamphlet contains the Annual and Sick Leave Act
of 1951, as amended, and the Annual and Sick Leave
Regulations, which are administered by the Civil Service
Commission. Matters fully covered by the language of
the law are, in general, not again covered by the regu-
lations, which were drafted to implement the law.
Since leave administration is both a personnel and a
fiscal matter, the Civil Service Commission, employing
agencies, and the General Accounting Office each have
certain areas of authority and responsibility with respect
to it. The Civil Service Commission issues the regula-
tions required under the act. Each agency decides
whether leave is to be granted in individual cases.
And the General Accounting Office audits approval and
use of leave. Many of the Comptroller General's de-
cisions which affect administration of the law and
regulations appear in chapter L-1 of the Federal Per-
sonnel Manual, which may be referred to in the personnel
offices of many Federal agencies.
This material is current as of December 1, 1954.

October 30, 1951, 65 Stat. 679, as amended by Public Law 102,
83d Congress, approved July 2, 1953).

officer and officers, respectively.

monthly, or other pay period when used in these regulations.

unused annual leave remaining to the credit of the employee
at the beginning of the first complete pay period occurring in
any calendar year.
(e) "Medical certificate" means a written
statement signed by a registered practicing physician or other
practitioner, certifying to the period of disability of the pa-
tient while he was undergoing professional treatment.
(f) "Contagious disease" means a disease ruled
as subject to quarantine or requiring isolation of the patient by
the health authorities having jurisdiction.

ernmental agencies.





(h) "Leave year" means the period from the
beginning of the first complete pay period in the calendar year
to the beginning of the first complete pay period in the follow-
ing calendar year. However, the 1953 leave year began im-
mediately following the last complete pay period in 1952.

Subpart B-General Provisions
SEC. 30.201 Pay periods other than biweekly.
Employees who are paid on other than a biweekly pay period
basis may earn and be credited with leave on a pro rata basis
for a full pay period.

charge for leave shall be 1 hour and additional charges in

reasons without charge to leave.
SEC. 30.203 Leave with pay status. Leave shall
accrue to an employee while in a pay status.
SEC. 30.204 Nonpay status. Whenever a full-
time employee's absence in a nonpay status within a leave year

the credits for sick leave shall be reduced Y day, and the credits
for annual leave shall be reduced % day, % day, or 1 day accord-
ing to the employee's leave-earning category: Provided, That
no leave shall accrue to the credit of an employee who is in
nonpay status for the entire leave year.
SEC. 30.205 Change in length of day. When-
ever the number of hours of duty in a full-time employee's
workday is permanently changed, the leave standing to his
credit shall be converted to the proper number of hours based
upon the new workday.
SEC. 30.206 Separation of employees indebted for
unearned leave. In case of the separation of an employee who
is indebted for unearned leave, the employee shall refund the
amount paid him for the period of such excess, or deduction
therefore shall be made from any salary due him. This section
shall not apply in cases of death, retirement for disability, or
in case an employee is unable to return to duty because of dis-





ability, evidence of which shall be supported by an acceptable
medical certificate: Provided, That employees who enter active
military service with restoration rights shall not be deemed
as separated for purposes of this section.
Subpart C-Annual Leave
SEC. 30.301 Overdrawn annual leave. When-
ever, at the end of the leave year, reductions in annual-leave
accruals under section 30.204 result in a final debit in the an-
nual leave account, the excess amount may be carried forward
for charge against leave earned in the following leave year, or,
in the discretion of the employing agency, the employee may
be required to refund the amount paid him for the period of
such excess. This regulation may be applied to debits at the
end of the 1952 leave year.
Subpart D-Sick Leave

shall be granted to employees when they are incapacitated for
the performance of their duties by sickness, injury, or preg-
nancy and confinement or for medical, dental, or optical exami-
nation or treatment, or when a member of the immediate
family of the employee is afflicted with a contagious disease
and requires the care and attendance of the employee, or when,
through exposure to contagious disease, the presence of the
employee at his post of duty would jeopardize the health of
others.
SEC. 30.402 Application for sick leave. Written
application for grant of sick leave shall be filed within such
time limits as the agency may prescribe. Requests for sick
leave for medical, dental, or optical examinations shall be
submitted for approval in advance.
SEC. 30.403 Supporting evidence. Any grant of
sick leave in excess of 3 workdays must be supported by a
medical certificate, or other evidence administratively accept-
able. For periods of absence of 3 workdays or less, the agency
may accept the employee's certification as to the reason for
the absence.
SEC. 30.404 Sickness during annual leave. When
sickness occurs within a period of annual leave, the period of





illness may be charged as sick leave subject to the provisions
of section 30.403.
SEC. 30.405 Sick leave not advanced. Sick leave
shall not be advanced to an employee holding a limited ap-
pointment, or one expiring on a specified date, in excess of the
total sick leave that would accrue during the remaining period
of such appointment: Provided, That an employee serving a
probationary or trial period shall not be construed as holding
a limited appointment for purposes of this section.

ployees accumulate 30 or 45 days' annual leave.

counting Office.

Subpart I-Administrative Orders Relieving Employees From
Duty
SEC. 30.901 Purpose. The purpose of the reg-
ulations in this subpart is to provide uniform and equitable
standards under which regular employees compensated at per
diem, per hour, or piecework rates may be relieved from duty
with pay by administrative order.
SEc. 30.902 Policy statement. The authority
in this subpart shall be used only to the extent warranted by
good administration for short periods of time not generally
exceeding three consecutive workdays in any single period of
excused absence. This authority shall not be used in situa-
tions of extensive duration or for periods of interrupted or
suspended operations such as ordinarily would be covered by
the scheduling of leave, furlough, or the assignment of other
work. Insofar as practicable, administrative orders issued
under this subpart shall provide for regular employees com.-
pensated at per diem, per hour, or piecework rates, benefits
similar to those granted to per annum employees.

pay periods.
(b) Any change in the rate of accrual of annual
leave by an officer or employee under the provisions of this

is authorized to the following categories of employees of the
Federal Government, other than officers and employees in the
Foreign Service of the United States under the Department of
State, stationed outside the several States and the District of
Columbia:
(1) Persons directly recruited or transferred from the
United States by the Federal Government.
(2) Persons employed locally but (A) who were origi-

the time of employment temporarily absent from the
United States for purposes of travel or formal study and
maintained residence in the United States during such
temporary absence.
(3) Persons who are not normally residents of the area
concerned and who are discharged from the military serv-
ice of the United States to accept employment with an
agency of the Federal Government.

Foreign Service of the United States under the Department of
State, and whose post of duty is outside the several States and





the District of Columbia returns to any such State or the Dis-
trict of Columbia on leave, the leave granted pursuant to this
Act shall be exclusive of the time actually and necessarily
occupied in going to and from his post of duty and such time
as may be necessarily occupied in awaiting sailing or flight.
The provisions of this subsection shall not apply with respect
to more than one period of leave in any 24-month period.
(f) Officers and employees in the Foreign Serv-
ice of the United States under the Department of State may be
granted leave of absence, without regard to any other leave
provided by this title, for use in the United States, its Terri-
tories or possessions, at a rate equivalent to 1 week for each 4
months of service outside the several States and the District
of Columbia. Such leave may be accumulated for future use
without regard to the limitation in subsection (c), but no such
leave which is not used shall be made the basis for any terminal
leave or lump-sum payment.
(g) Alien employees who occupy positions
outside the several States and the District of Columbia may,
in the discretion of the head of the department or agency con-
cerned, be granted leave of absence with pay not in excess of
the amount of annual and sick leave allowable under this title
in the case of citizen employees.
(h) The annual leave provided for in this sec-
tion, including such leave as will accrue to any officer or em-
ployee during the year, may be granted at any time during
such year as the heads of the various departments and inde-
pendent establishments may prescribe.
(i) Notwithstanding the provisions of sub-
section (a), an officer or employee shall be entitled to annual
leave under this title only after having been employed currently
for a continuous period of 90 days under one or more appoint-
ments without break in service. In any case in which an
officer or employee completes a period of continuous employ-
ment of 90 days, there shall be credited to him an amount of
annual leave equal to the amount which, but for this subsec-
tion, would have accrued to him under subsection (a) during
such period.

be without charge to such leave or loss of compensation.
Saturday occurring in a period of annual or sick leave taken
in a smaller number of days may at the option of the carrier
be charged to his accrued leave and when so charged he shall
be paid for such absence.





(e) In the case of transfer of an officer or em-
ployee between positions under different leave systems (other
than transfers involving positions exempted under section
202 (b) (1) (B), (C), or (H)), without a break in service, the
