- Your personal holiday cannot be banked or used outside this period, or it is lost.
- Talk with your supervisor before you use your holiday and follow the same procedure as would for requesting vacation leave.
- Your personal holiday must be taken in whole day increments.
- If you leave the University (either voluntarily or involuntarily) before you use your personal holiday, you will not be paid for this time.
