How many vacation hours can I have available at the end of the year?
A .Each employee can have as much as two years’ worth of time ‘on the books’ on December 31st of each year. What that means is that your balance can have as much as double what you earn in one year. If you are not sure what your yearly amount is look on your pay stub, your rate of accrual is on the lower left side.
Multiply your earned number by 48. That is the maximum you can have in this ‘bucket’. So for a person who accrues 7 hours twice a month, the maximum amount they can have ‘on the books’ is 336 hours (7 X 48 = 336).
