A member of staff is leaving partway through the leave year and has annual leave outstanding; do they have to take it?
Staff should take any outstanding leave during their notice period.
When staff leave employment, their holiday leave entitlement is calculated on a pro-rata basis, at the rate of one-twelfth of the annual entitlement each month.
Staff should take any outstanding leave during their notice period. Exceptionally, where operational circumstances prevent leave from being taken, staff will receive pay in lieu; payment will be subject to PAYE and NI deductions. Research funded staff will be required to take outstanding leave before the end of their contract. Note that where people are transferring to another University department, the leave cannot be paid in lieu, it either must be taken or transferred (with agreement) to the new department,
