On Saturday morning, August 15,
1914, a few days following the out-
break of World War I, a peaceful
event of profound significance to
world commerce occurred on the
Isthmus of Panama. The Panama
Railroad liner SS Ancon, her newly
painted hull gleaming in the
early morning sun, moved slowly
away from the Cristobal pier ancl
steamed into the Atlantic entrance
of the Canal and proceeded on an
historic voyage. After an unevent-
ful passage that took 9 hours and
40 minutes, the old cement carrier
of construction days arrived at the
end of the dredged channel in
Panama Bay, then turned back and
docked at Balboa. It was the first
transit of the Panama Canal, a
notable event in the history of our
The official opening of the Pan-
ama Canal, marking the final
achievement of centuries of dream-
ing and planning and years of tre-
mendous effort and often seemingly.
unsurmountable problems, went
almost unnoticed as the war in
Europe canceled out preparations
for an elaborate celebration. The
glowing record of accomplishment
l>y American engineers, medical
men and Canal diggers, however,
was dignified here by the dis-
tinguished guests aboard the Ancon
that day. Among them were the
Secretary of War; Panama's Pres-
ident Belisario Porras and mem-
hers of his Cabinet and other Pan-
ama Government officials; members

of the diplomatic aird consular
corps; and officials of the Panama
Canal. Others witnessed that first
transit at points along the banks
of the Canal route.
Next Tuesday will mark the
64th anniversary of that first mem-
orable transit of the SS Ancon.
Since August 15, 1914 through the
first 9 months of fiscal year 1978,
a total of 533,022 vessels of all
categories, flying the flags of all
maritime nations, have arrived at
the Canal from the four corners
of the world. They carried a mul-
titude of cargoes weighing a total
of 3,077,464,401 long tons.
In recent months,* vessels hiden
with Alaska crude oil have joined
the parade of ships at the Canal,
transporting their .precious cargo
to East and Gulf ports at the rate
of 2.5 ships a day.
The opening of the Panama
Canal has resulted in enormous
savings to shipping and consumers
all over the world. It has generated
the development of new trade areas
and new industries and been a
most important factor in the econ-
omic development of Latin Amer-
ica, serving as a veritable lifeline
to the countries on the west coast
of South America.
Although the Canal is basically
the same as the day it opened,
physical improvements and modern
procedures have made it possible
to handle more traffic and the
larger vessels carrying greater
quantities of cargo per transit.






A Grounds Management employee prepares to "make the dirt fly" as he
plants new trees in the old "Pub" area near the Balboa ballparks. The
Syzygium syzygiodes resembles the weeping willow and will both
beautify and provide a screen for the new Canal Zone Vehicle and
Boat Display Area.

Cecil F. Haynes' over half a
century of service with the Pan-
ama Canal was recognized recently
when Lt. Gov. James H. Tormey
presented him a 50-Year Service
Award and Pin with five diamond
chips, each representing a decade
of service.
Haynes, all of whose employ-
ment has been with the Division
of Storehouses began working when
he was 14 as an office, boy in
Building 28 in the Industrial Area
under Fdward Parmelee who was
then the General Storekeeper.
He remembers Parmelee with
fondness for having befriended
him when as a new and frightened
messenger, he wrecked the store-
house bicycle he was riding. Rather
than being fired, as he felt sure he
would he, Parmelee presented him
with a new "Ivers Johnson" bike
. the best you could buy in those

He has other good memories of
"those days" when office boys
earned $22.50 a month and felt
they were quite well off with what
it could buy.
Haynes' parents came from the
West Indies to the Isthmus in 1904
to help build the Panama Canal.
He remembers them fondly as good
old fashioned parents who instilled
in him the pride they felt at being
a part of the Canal enterprise. His
father worked for the old Quarter-
master Division. They raised their
family of six children in La Boca
where Haynes attended school and
later returned to study 2 years at
the Canal Zone College.
In 1968, Haynes received an
Outstanding Performance Award
and through the years he has been
a regular contributor to the In-
centive Awards Program in which
over a dozen of his suggestions have
been accepted and put into use,

Now a Control Clerk with the
Inventory Management Branch of
the Storehouses, but still in
Building 28, Haynes has no plans
to retire. He believes that as long
as one has good health, one should
work and keep active. *
Although he and his wife, Mar-
garita, have had. no children of
their own, they have helped raise
and educate several nephews. One
is Frank Haynes, an industrial en-
gineer with the Executive Planning
Staff and another, Sidney Myers,
works with the Executive Branch
of IBM in New Jersey.
Haynes leads a busy life when
he isn't working. He is a weekly
attendant at Episcopalian services,
a Mason in Lodge St. Andrews
No. 1140 of the Scottish jurisdic~
tion and enjoys sports in general,
particularly tennis. He and his wife
live in their home in La Loma
section of Panama City.

The clock says a few minutes before 2, but for Cecil F. Haynes time
has been measured in years of service to the Panama Canal-half a cen-
tury to be exact--for which he is receiving a 50-Year Service Pin from
Richard K. Erbe, Supply and Community Services Bureau Director. The
pin is studded with five diamonds, each representing 10 years of service.
At left is Lt. Gov. James H. Tormey, who made the official presentation.

People who want to sit in on
college classes without earning
credit or taking exams may now
do so under the new audit policy
adopted by Canal Zone College
this summer. Audit students are
entitled to the low tuition rate,
regardless of place of residence.
Adults who already have or don't
need a college degree and residents
of Panama who would otherwise
have to pay the high tuition rate
are expected to be the main ben-
eficiaries of the new policy.
Young students might also wish
to audit, either to prepare them-
selves for a particularly difficult
course or to learn something un-
related to their major. Auditing
might be the answer as well for
students with heavy classloads.
Under the auditing policy a
regularly enrolled student may
switch to audit anytime during the
semester. Audit students may switch
to a credit basis only during the
first 3 weeks of the class.
Although auditors do not take the
final exam or receive a grade, they
do get to participate in all class
activities and assignments.
Intensive English courses and
science labs are excluded from
audit since they involve both more
instructor time than credits at-
tached to them and considerable
expenses for lab materials. Whether
auditors will be allowed in other
classes is up to the instructor.

Leave Transfer Guideknes for Company-Government Employees

The following is a continuation of questions and answers pertaining to
various personnel-related matters affected by the new Treaty.
Will U.S. employees in the Police and Fire groups who transfer after
the effective date of the Treaty to other Federal positions in the United
States be allowed to retain that higher percentage of annuity that was
earned for each year of service with the Commission?
There are two "higher percentage" annuities. One is the annuity that
is paid to Company-Government employees who continue in service
with the Commission, it is paid at the rate of 2% percent per year for
each year of service with the Commission after the entry into force of
the Treaty. The other is the 2% percent annuity paid to policemen and
firemen. Under the early retirement provisions a person who retires as
a policeman or fireman with at least 18 years of such hazardous du
service and who is at least 48 years of age is entitled to the 2% percent
annuity for all of his hazardous duty service (up to 20 years). The higher
annuity earned for service with the Commission will be iricluded in com-
puting the annuity of a person who, after a period of service with the
Commission, transfers to a Federal agency in the United States and
subsequently retires. The higher percentage earned for service in
hazardous duty occupations will not be included in computing the
annuity of a person who transfers to a nonhazardous duty job in a
Federal agency in the United States and subsequently retires. The higher
annuity earned for hazardous duty service will be included in computing
the annuity of a person who transfers, after the entry into force of the
Treaty, to a hazardous duty job in a Federal agency in the United States
and who retires with at least 18 years of police or fire service and at
age 48 or older-
Will the same employees mentioned above be eligible to transfer the
$12 a month annuity earned for each month of service (not to exceed
20 years) prior to the effective date of the Treaty, or the $8 a month
additional annuity that was earned for each month of such service after
entry into force of the Treaty (not to exceed 20 years) to whatever
Federal agency employs them in the future?
The $12 bonus is paid only if the employee fails to meet the require-
ments for a hazardous duty annuity: 18 years of police or fire service
and 48 years of age. This bonus will be added to the annuity ultimately
derived from the employee's retirement after any future Federal. em-
ployment. The $8 bonus is earned for each month of-police or fire service
with the Panama Canal Commission after the Treaty enters into force
and is paid whether or not the employee meets the 18 years of service
and 48 years of age requirements. This bonus will also be added to the
employee's retirement annuity upon his retirement from any Federal
agency. The $12 bonus is paid for service prior to the entry into force
of the Treaty, and the $8 honus is paid for service after the entry into
force of the Treaty.
Will other U.S. employees not in the police and fire groups who remain
working for the new Commission for a number of years after the effective
date of the Treaty and who subsequently transfer, to other Federal
agencies in the United States be allowed to retain that higher percentage
of annuity that was earned for each year of service with the Commission?
Yes. However, only the service with the Commission will be com-
puted at the higher rate. Other service will be computed at the regular
rate. -

a. After projection of the ex-
pired leave for the 1978 leave year
(December 31, 1978 through Jan-
uary 13, 1979), the employee's
leave balance is 840 hours. The
total of 840 is represented by 816
hours of annual leave (888 less 72)
and 24 hours of holiday pay
(32 less 8).
b. Because the balance of the
unexpired leave exceeds the ceiling
of 760 hours that an employee can
carry forward into a new leave
year, 80 hours of leave is forfeited.
c. After projecting the amount
of leave used during the 1979 leave
year or 80 hours, the employee's
leave account is credited with 680
hours (760 less 80).
d. The employee repays an
amount equal to 760 leave hours
consisting of 656 hours of regular
leave, 24 hours of holiday pay,
and 80 hours of forfeited leave. .
A solution to the problem of re-
payment of annual leave is to
request that the Canal organiza-
tion not issue a lump-sum payment
if the employee is to be reem-
ployed with a Fedenil agency sub-
sequent to separation. The Comp-
troller General (49 Comp. Gen.
444, 1970) has ruled that em-
ployees who are separated and
then reemployed by another agency
prior to the processing of the lump.
sum leave payment may be paid
for that portion of leave which ex-
pired during the interval between
employment, less taxes, and have
the remaining leave transferred
without tax deductions to the new
For those employees who transfer
without a break in service, the
following procedures are appli-

a. All unused accumulated and
accrued annual leave is trans-
ferred and credited to the em-
ployee's regular annual leave fic-
count on an hour-for-hour basis.
b. If the amount of annual
leave exceeds 240 hours, a per-
sonal leave ceiling is established
in the amount represented by the
accumulated and accrued leave
transferred, not to exceed 760
For example, an employee trans-
fers without a break in service
and has accumulated 760 hours
from the preceding year, and 200
hours earned during the current
year is treated as follows:
a. An amount equal to 960
hours of annual leave is transferred
and credited to the employee s
regular leave account.
b. The employee s personal
leave ceiling is established at 760
c. The 200 hours plus what-
ever is earned during the current
year with the new agency is sub-
ject to the regular forfeiture
A personal leave ceiling is main-
tained unless it is reduced at the
beginning of each leave year by
the amount of regular annual leave
the employee takes in excess of
the amount earned during the pre-
ceding leave year.
Once the employee's leave bal-
ance at the beginning of any leave
year equals the maximum amount
of accumulation under the regul-
ations, he no longer has a "per-
sonal ceiling "*

of leave earned during the current
leave year and not taken.
c. Lump-sum payment-Pay-
ment for accumulated and accrued
annual leave and any restored leave
upon separation.
d. Holiday pay-Pay for sched-
uled holidays that will occur
during the expiration of the period
of leave covered by a lump-sum
e. Expired annual leave-The
number of hours of leave which
expires between a break in service
and date of reemployment-
f. Unexpired annual leave-
The number of hours of leave re-
maining after the expired leave has
been projected over the period
represented by the break in serv-
For those employees who sep-
arate from the Canal organization,
accept a lump-sum payment, and
are subsequently reemployed with
a Federal agency prior to the ex-
piration of the period of leave
represented by the lump-sum pay-
ment, the following procedures are
The employee refunds that por-
tion of the lump-sum payment
represented by the unexpired reg-
ular annual leave and any holiday
pay for any holidays which have
not occurred prior to the date of
employment. If the amount of

annual leave to be credited ex-
ceeds 240 hours a personal leave
ceiling is established in an amount
not to exceed 760 hours.
The unexpired leave is repaid
at the hourly rate it was com-
muted, i.e., the hourly rate of pay
plus the tropical differential, if ap-
plicable, on an hour-for-hour basis.
Also, because U.S. income taxes
will be deducted from the lump-
sum payment, the employee will
he required- to repay the full
amount of the unexpired leave and
seek a tax credit at the end of the
tax year for the over-payment of
taxes due to the withholding of in_
come tax on the lump-sum pay-
The amount of leave credited
to the employee's leave balance
with the new agency is dependent
upon whether the reemployment
occurs within the same leave year
or the subsequent leave year.
If reemployment occurs in te
same leave year the employee re-
funds all unexpired regular annu
leave, including that in excess o
760 hours. A personal leave ceiling,
not to exceed 760 hours, is estab-
lished in the amount represented
by the recredited annual leave. All
hours in excess of 760 hours be-
come subject to the regular for-
feiture regulations'
For example, an employee re-
ceives a lump-sum payment for
820 hours of regular leave and 40
hours of holiday pay leave for a
total of 860 hours. The employee
had a 5-day break in service in-
cluding one holiday during the
5 days.

requi dTt ree ea re
resenting 788 hours of regular
annual leave (820 less 32), and
32 hours of holiday pay (40 less 8)
for a total of 820 hours.
b. All 820 hours would be
credited to the employee's reg-
ular leave account. A personal
leave ceiling of 760 hours would
be established. The remaining 60
hours of annual leave (820 less 760)
plus that earned during the current
leave year .with the new agency
would be subject to the regular
forfeiture regulations,
If the reemployment occurs in
a subsequent leave year the em-
ploying agency must consider the
leave balance at the end of the
leave year in which the separation
occurred. If the balance of un-
expired leave is more than 760
hours, the hours in access of 760
are forfeited, the employee carries
760 hours of leave forward into
the leave year subsequent to separ-
ation, and 760 hours becomes the
employee's leave ceiling.
The amount of regular annual
leave, not to exceed 760 hours,
carried forward into the leave year
of reemployment must then be
reduced by the amount of regular
annual leave which has expired
between the beginning of that
leave year and the date of re-
employment. The balance is re-
credited to the employee's regular
annual leave account as of the date
of reemployment.
For example, an employee sep-
arates on December 30, 1978 and
receives a lump-sum payment for
888 hours of annual leave and 32
hours of holiday pay for a total
of 920 hours. Reemployment oc~
curs on January 28, 1979 after a
break in service of 2 pay periods,
including one holiday. 0

The Civil Service Commission
has issued specific guidelines for
the transfer or recredit of annual
leave of those employees of the
Company-Government who resign
and are subsequently reemployed
by a Federal agency in the United
States subject to the Annual Sick
and Leave Act of 1951. The guide-
lines were issued so that all Fed-
eral agencies will, in the future,
apply in a uniform manner the
prescribed regulations for the re-
credit of annual leave of Com-
pany-Government employees de-
siring to relocate in the United
States and continue working for
the Federal government. Because
of possible leave forfeiture, em-
ployees planning to accept Federal
jobs in the United States are urged
to study the following guidelines
and make their plans accordingly.
The Commission's guidelines are
not new interpretations of the reg-
ulations. They were issued to spe.
cifically address the problems- that
have arisen due to nonconformance
by some Federal agencies of the
existing leave regulations.
The following definitions will
assist in understanding the reg-

gadas con petr61eo procedente de
Alaska se han incorporado al des-
file de barcos que transitan el
Canal, transportando su carga pre-
ciosa hasta los puertos del Este y
del Golfo a raz6n de 2.5 barons

La aperture del Canal de Pa-
nama ha resultado en enormes
ahorros para las empress navie-
ras y los consumidores en todo el
mundo. Ha propiciado el desarro-

industrial y ha sido un factor de
suma importancia en el desarrollo
econ6mico de Am4tica Latina, sien-
do factor de vital importancia para

cena de sus sugerencias han sido

Actualmente Haynes ocupa la
posici6n de Oficinista de Control
can el Ramo de Administraci6n de
Inventario de Almacenes en el edi-
ficio 28 y no piensa fubilarse por
ahora. El opina que mientras uno
tenga buena salud, debe trabajar
y mantenerse active.
Aunque 41 y su esposa, Marga-
rita, nunca tuvieron hijos propios,
han criado y educado a various so-
brinos. Uno es Frank Haynes, in-
geniero industrial en la Oficina de
Planificaci6n y otro, Sydney Myers,
trabaja en el Ramo Ejecutivo de
la IBM en Nueva Jersey.
Ademis de su trabajo, Haynes
Ileva una vida muy active. Es acu-
diente seminal a los servicios Epis-
copales, es Mas6n de la Logia
Saint Andrews N9 1140 de la fu-
risdicci6n Escocesa y disfruta de
todos los deportees, particularmente
el tenis. El y su esposa tienen su
hogar en La Loma, ciudad de

Tambi6n tiene otros buenos re-
cuerdos de "aquellos dias" cuando
los mensajeros devengaban un
sueldo de $22.50 al mes, y les pa-
recia que estaban muy bien eco-
n6micamente debido a 10 mucho
que podian comprar*
En 1904 los padres de Haynes
vinieron al Istmo procedentes de
las Antillas para participar on la
construction del Canal de Pana-
mi. El los recuerda tiernamente
como buenos padres que inculca-
ron en 61 el orgullo que ellos sen-
tian de ser parte de la empresa
canalera. Su padre trabaj6 con la
antigua Divisi6n de Intendencia.
Sus padres criaron a su familiar de
seis niflos en La Boca, lugar donde
Haynes asisti6 a la escuela y mis
tarde ingres6 en la Universidad de
la Zona del Canal donde curs6 es-
tudios durante 2 afios.
En 1968, Haynes recibi6 un
Premio por Desempefio Sobresa-
liente y, durante el curso de los
afios, ha sido un fiel contribuyente
al Program de Premios por In-
centivo, en el cual mis de una do-

Al cumplir mis de medio siglo
de servicio con el Canal de Pa-
namA, Cecil F. Haynes-fue objeto
de un reconocimiento la semana
pasada cuando el Vicegobernador
James H. Tormey le present un
premio y distinctive por 50 afios de
servicio can cinco diamantitos-
cada uno represent una d6cada
de servicio.
Haynes, cuyos 50 ailos de ser-
vicio han sido con la Divisi6n de
Almacenes, empez6 a trabajar a la
temprana edad de 14 ailos como
mensafero en el edificio 28 del
Area Industrial bajo Edward Par-
melee, que era entonces Jefe Ge-
neral de Almacenes.
El guard gratos recuerdos de
Parmelee, quien le demostr6 com-
prensi6n cuando, siendo un nuevo
y asustado mensafero, choc6 la bi-
cideta del almacin que manejaba.
En vez de ser despedido, 10 cual
pareceria inevitable, Parmelee le
entreg6 una nueva bickleta de
marca "Ivers Johnson" . la
mejor que se podia comprar en
esa 6poca. .

El reloj marca unos pocos minutes antes de las 2, pero para Cecil F.
Haynes el tempo ha sido medido en aiios de servicio en el Canal de
PanamA-desde hace medio siglo, para ser mis exactos-por lo cual recipe
un distinctive por 50 Aiios de Servicio de manos de Richard K. Erbe,
Director de Abasto y Servicios Comunales. El distintivo tiene 5 diaman-
titos-cada uno represents una d6cada de servicto. A la izquierda esti
el Vicegobernador James H. Tormey, quien hizo la presentacl6n official.

Las personas que deseen asistir
alas cases universitarias sin ganar
crAdito o pasar exbmenes abora
pueden hacerlo segr'm la nueva
norma para oyentes que fue adap-
tada por la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal este verano. Los estu-
diantes oyentes tienen derecho a
la matricula reducida, sin impor-
tar el lugar de residencia.
So espera que los adults Que ya
tienen o que no necesitan un ti-
tulo universitario y que son resi-
dentes de PanamA y que de 10
contrario tendrian que pagar la
matricula alta, sean los principles
beneficiaries de la nueva norma.
Es possible que los estudiantes
j6venes tengan deseas de ser oyen-
tes, ya sea para prepararse para un
curso dificil o para aprender algo
que no tenga relaci6n con la ma-
teria en que se estin especializan-
do. Ser oyente tambibn puede ser
de beneficio para estudiantes que
tienen un plan de studios cerrado.
Seg(m la norma de oyente, un
estudiante regularmente matricula-
do puede cambiarse a oyente en
cualquier moment durante el se-
mestre si asi lo desea. Los estu-
diantes oyentes pueden cambiarse
a base de cr6dito s610 durante las
3 primers semanas de la clase.
Aunque los oyentes no pasan
eximenes finales o reciben una ca-
lificaci6n, si podrin participar en
todas las actividades y signatures
de la clase.
Los cursos intensivos de ingl6s
y de laboratorio de ciencias estin
excluidos a los oyentes ya que
exigen mis tismpo de parte del
instructor y gastos considerable

para materials. Depend del ins-
tructor si se permitirin oyentes en
las otras clauses.
La matricula continuard hasta el
18 de agosto para las classes Que
se iniciarAn el lunes. Ya que los
oyentes no pueden matricularse en
una clase hasta que est& oficial-
mente formada, algunos tendrAn
que esperar hasta la matricula tar-
dia. En ese caso, no se le cobrarA
el recargo por matricula tardia.
La matricula para todos los es-
tudiantes oyentes de tempo par-
cial es de $25 por hora de cridito.

A continuaci6n aparecen preguntas y respuestas que tienen relaci6n
con el personal que serd afectado por el nuevo Tratado.
Los empleados de los Grupos de Policia y de Bomberos que se tras-
laden a otras posiciones federales en los Estados Unidos, despubs de la
entrada en vigencia del Tratado, apodr6n retener la pension calculada
en base al mis alto porcentafe por cada afio de servicio con la Comisibn?
Hay dos pensioners de "mbs alto porcentaje". Una es la pension que
se le paga a los empleados de la Compabia y Gobierno por continual en
el servicio de la Comisi6n; que es de 2% por client por afio, por cada
aixo de servicio prestado a la Comisi6n despubs de la entrada en vigencia
del Tratado. La otra es la pension de 2% por ciento que se aplica a los
policies ya los bombers. Segrin las disposiciones de la jubilaci6n anti-
cipada, tina persona que se jubila como policia 0 bombero can un minimo
de 18 ailos de servicio arriesgado y que tenga por 10 menos 48 ailos de
edad tiette derecho a la pension de 2% por client por todo su servicio
arriesgada (hasta 20 a50s). La pension mis alta devengada por servicio
can la Comisi6n seri incluida en el c6mputo de la pension de una per-
sona que, despubs de un period de servicio con la Comisi6n, se traslade
a una agencia Federal en los Estados Unidos y subsiguientemente se
jubila. El mAs alto porcentaje devengado por servicio en ocupaciones
arriesgadas no serd incluido en el c6mputo de la pension de una persona
que se traslade a un employ no arriesgado en una agencia Federal en
los Estados Unidos y subsiguientelnente se jubila. La mis alta pension
devengada por servicio arriesgado seri incluida en el c6mputo de la
pension de una persona que se traslade despubs de la entrada en vigen-
cia del Tratado, a un employ arriesgado en una agencia Federal en los
Estados Unidos y que se jubila can por lo menos 18 afios de servicio
como policia 0 bomber ya la edad de 48 afios o mis.
gSerin elegibles los mismos emplendos susodichos para transferir la
pension mensual de $12 devengada por cada mes de servicio (que no
exceda 20 alios) antes de la entrada en vigencia del Tratado, a la pension
mensual adicional de $8 devengada por cada mes de tal servicio despu4s
de la entrada en vigencia del Tratado (que no exceda 20 afios) a
cualquier agencia Federal que los emplee en el future?
La bonificaci6n de $12 es pagada 8610 si el empleado no ilena los
sequisitos para una pension por servicio arriesgado: 18 afios de servicio
como policia o bomber y 48 alios de edad. Esta bonificaci6n serA sumada
a la pension finalmente derivada de la jubilaci6n del empleado despubs
de cualquier employ Federal future. La bonificaci6n de $8 es devengada
por cada mes de servicio como policia 0 bomber con la Comisi6n del
Canal de Panami despubs de la entrada en vigencia del Tratado y es
pagada aunque el empleado no llene los requisites de 18 aflos de servicio
y 48 afios de edad. Esta bonificaci6n tambi6n seri sumada a la pension
de fubilaci6n del empleado al acogerse a la jubilaci6n de cualquier
agenda Federal. La bonificaci6n de $12 es pagada pot servicio antes
de la entrada en vigencia del Tratado, y la bonificaci6n de $8 es pagada
por servicio despubs de la entrada en vigencia del Tratado.
Los otros empleados estadounidenses que no estin en los grupos de
policia o bombers y que contindan trabajando para la nueva Comisi6n
durante un n6mero de afios despubs de la entrada en vigencia del Tra-
tado y que subsiguientemente se trasladen a otras agencies federales en
los Estados Unidos, ApodrAn ellos retener el mis alto porcentaje de
pension devengado por cada afio de servicio con la Comisi6n?
Si. Sin embargo, s610 el servicio con la Comisi6n seri computado en
base al porcentaje mis alto. Otro tipo de servicio serA calculado en base
al porcentaje normal.


vicio, los siguientes procedimien-
tos son applicable:
a. Todas las vacaciones acu-
muladas y acreditadas pero no
usadas son transferidas y anotadas
a la cuenta de vacaciones regula-
res del empleado a base de hora
por hora.
b. Si la cantidad de vacacio-
nes excede las 240 horas, el limited
de vacaciones personages es esta-
blecido por la cantidad represen-
tada por Ias vacaciones acumuladas
y acreditadas que han sido trans-
feridas, y que no excedan las
760 haras.
Por ejeemplo, un empleado se
traslada sin interrupci6n de servi-
cio y ha acumulado'760 horas del
afio anterior, y 200 horas ganadas
durante el presence ailo, es trata-
do como sigue:
a. Una cantidad igual a 960
horas de vacaciones es transferida
y anotada a la cuenta de vacacio-
nes regulars del empleado.
b. El limited de vacaciones
personable del empleado es esta-
bleeido en 760 horas.
c. Las 200 horas adicionales
ganadas durante el presence ailo
can la nueva agencia estin suje-
tas a phrdida y/o a los reglamen-
tos schre repair.
El limited de vacaciones perso-
nales es mantenido a menos que
sea reducido al comienzo de cada
afia de vacaciones por la cantidad
de vacaciones regulars que' el em-
pleado toma en excess de la can-
tidad ganada durante el ailo de
vacaciones anterior.
Cuando el balance de vacacio-
nes del empleado al comienzo de
cualquier afio de vacaciones es
igual a la cantidad mAxima de abu-

vacaciones vencidas para el afio
de vacaciones de 1978 (31 de di-
ciembre de 1978 hasta el 13 de
enero de 1979), el balance de va-
caciones del empleado es de 840
horas. El total de 840 esta repre-
sentado por 816 horas de vacacio-
nes (888 menos 72) y 24 horas de
pago por clia feriado (32 menos 8).
b. Debido a que el balance
de las vacaciones no vencidas ex-
cede la limitaci6n de 760 horas,
80 horas de vacaciones regulars
son perdidas debido a que la can-
tidad de vacaciones excede el
limited de 760 horas que un em-
pleado puede 11evar al nuevo aiio
de vacaciones.
c. Despu6s de proyectar la
cantidad de vacaciones usadas du-
rante el afio de vacaciones de
1979 u 80 horas, se anotarin 680
horas (760 menos 80) a la cuenta
de vacaciones del empleado.
d. El empleado reembolsa la
cantidad igual alas 760 horas de
vacaciones que consta de 656 ho-
ras de vacaciones regulars, 24
horas de pago por dia feriado y
80 horas de vacaciones perdidas.
Una soluci6n al problema de
pago de vacaciones es solicitar
que la organizaci6n del Canal no
expida el pago de una suma total
si el empleado ha de ser emplea-
do por una agencia Federal sub-
siguiente a la separaci6n. El Con-
tralor General (49 Comp. Gen.
444, 1970) ha ordenado que los
empleados que, se separen y des-
pubs son empleados por otra agen-
exa antes de la tramitaci6n del
pago de vacaciones de una suma
total puede ser pagado por vaca-
ciones vencidas, durante el inter-
valo entre los employs, menos
impu tospued e slas nsaf id

sin descuentos por impuestos a la
nueva agencia,
Para aquellos empleados que se
trasladen sin interrupci6n de ser-

por una cantidad que no exceda
las 760 horas.
Las vacaciones no vencidas son
pagadas seg6n la rata por hora a
que fueron computadas; v.g., la
rata por hora mis el diferencial
tropical, si es applicable, a base de
hora por hora. Ademis, ya que
los impuestos sobre la renta serin
descontados del pago de una suma
total, el empleado tendril que de-
volver la cantidad total de las va-
caciones no vencidas y solicitar
que le acrediten una suma corres-
pondiente a fin de ailo por haber
pagado un excess de impuestos
debido a que el impuesto fue re-
tenido del pago de la suma total.
El tempo de vacaciones acredi-
tado al balance de vacaciones del
empleado que trabaja con una
nueva agencia depend de si la
colocaci6n ocurre dentro del mis-
mo ano de vacaciones a durante el
aGo de vacaciones subsiguiente.
Si la colocaci6n ocurre en el
mismo also de vacaciones, el em-
pleado tendril que reembolsar to-
das las vacaciones regulars no
vencidas, inclusive las que tenga
en excess. de las 760 horas. El
limited de vacaciones personages,
que no exceda las 760 horas, es
determined por la cantidad re
presentada en las vacaciones reco- -
nocidas. Todas las haras en excess
de las 760 horas estin sujetas a
los reglamentos establecidos sobre
p4rdida de horas.
Por ejemplo, un empleado re-
cibe el pago de una suma total
por 820 horas de vacaciones re-
gulares y 40 haras de vacaciones
por el pago de dia feriado por un
total de 860 horas. El empleado
tuvo una interrupci6n de servicio

fiad5 chasanincluyendodiun dia fe
a. El empleado tendril que
reembolsar la cantidad que repre
senta las 788 horas de vacaciones
regulars (820 menos 32), y 32
horas de pago por dia feriado
(40 menos 8) por un total de 820
b. Las 820 horas serian acre-
ditadas a la cuenta de vacaciones
regulars del empleado. El limited
de vacaciones personals de 780
haras seria establecido. Las 60
horas restantes de vacaciones
(820 menos 760) mis 10 ganado
durante el actual afio de vacacio-
nes can la nueva agencia estarian
sujetos a los reglamentos estable-
cidas sobre pirdida de horas.
Si la colocaci6n ocurre durante
un ano de vacaciones subsiguien-
te, la agencia empleadora debe
tomar en consideraci6n el balance
de vacaciones al finalizar el afio
de vacaciones en que ocurri6 la
separaci6n. Si el balance de vaca-
ciones no vencidas es mis de las
760 horas, las horas en excess de
760 son perdidas, el empleado
lleva 760 horas de vacaciones al
nuevo afio de vacaciones subsi-
guiente a la separaci6n, y las
760 horas serin el limited de vaca-
ciones del empleado.
La cantidad de vacaciones re-
gulares que no exceda las 760
horas Ilevadas al nuevo ailo de
vacaciones del empleo debe en-
tonces ser reducida por la canti-
dad de vacaciones regulars que
ha vencido entre el comienzo del
aiio de vacaciones y la fecha de
empleo. El balance es anotada a
la cuenta del afio regular de va-
caciones del empleado a partir
de la fecha de empleo.
Por ejemplo, un empleado se
separa el 30 de diciembre de 1978
y recipe el pago de una suma
total por 888 horas de vacaciones
y 32 horas por pago de dia feriado
por un total de 920 horas. La co-
locaci6n ocurre el 28 de enero de
1979 despubs de una interrupci6n
de servicio de 2 periods de pago,
incluyendo un dia feriado.
