An employee will be paid for any accrued and unused vacation upon termination unless transferring to another state agency with no break in service. The employee must have completed six months of continuous state service before being paid for vacation. The department is responsible for completing a Departmental Vacation/Holiday Payroll Voucher, and sending it to Human Resources. An employee can also be paid for vacation if they move to a position that does not accrue vacation.
