Taking up holiday leave via Self Service before the end of the calendar year

In line with the CAO NU, the holiday procedure states that employees have to take up their holiday entitlement in the year that the entitlement was accrued. If this is not possible, employees are allowed to carry over any remaining holiday hours to the following calendar year. Employees have to use up these hours carried forward in this following calendar year. Any hours that are not used will expire at the end of this calendar year.

The Procedure also states that employees are required to apply to take holiday hours via Self Service. This applies to all employees except for those who have made an annual agreement. If you have not recorded your holidays via the holiday registration system by the end of 2015, your entitlement for 2015 will be assumed to have been used. You are advised to plan your holidays in good time and submit your requests to take up leave via Self Service.

If you carry holiday hours accrued in 2015 but not yet used over to 2016, you are required to agree with your supervisor before 1 April 2016 when you will take up these holiday hours in 2016.

Any holiday hours from the previous year (2014) that have not been used will expire at the end of 2015.
