Restrictions imposed by COVID-19 have made it impossible for many of us to take advantage of vacation days as we would under normal circumstances. Therefore the College is allowing staff to carry forward an additional eight days of unused vacation to the 2021-22 fiscal year. These days must be used by June 30, 2022, and as usual, the timing of them must be approved in advance by your supervisor.

As previously announced, the five extra carryover days from 2019-20 must be taken by June 30, 2021. Also, extra carryover days don’t count toward the payout given to those with unused vacation time when their employment at Lafayette has ended.

We again strongly encourage you to take your vacation days and holidays to pause and gain some relief from the stresses of work and the pandemic.

Thanks for your continued dedication to Lafayette!

The Office of Human Resources
