Cash Out of Annual and Compensatory Leave Upon Separation From County Employment

The County must pay an employee who separates from County service a lump sum payment for the total accrued annual leave as of the date of separation, less any indebtedness to the County government. The payment must be made at the employee's current rate of pay.

The County must pay a Non-exempt employee: (under the Fair Labor Standards Act)- who leaves County employment for all unused compensatory time.

The County must pay an exempt employee (not covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act) who leaves County employment for up to 80 hours of unused compensatory time or a larger pro-rated amount if the employee's regular work schedule includes more than 80 hours per pay period and convert the hours for which an employee is not paid to sick leave.
