While restrictions imposed by COVID-19 have begun to ease, it still has been difficult for many of us to take advantage of vacation days as we would have under normal circumstances. Therefore, the College is allowing staff to carry forward an additional eight days of unused vacation to the 2022-23 fiscal year. These days must be used by June 30, 2023, and as usual, their timing must be approved in advance by your supervisor. This is the last year that we will allow an additional carryover due to COVID-19.

The extra carryover days do not count toward the payout given to those with unused vacation time when their employment at Lafayette ends. The additional eight days will expire as of June 30, 2023.

We want to stress how important it is for each of us to take time away from work to recharge. We strongly encourage you to take your vacation days to enjoy whatever it is you most like to do.

Thank you for your continued dedication to Lafayette!
