Continuous & Credited Service


Employment without a break in service, including all approved leaves of absence with or without pay.  Dismissal or voluntary resignation constitutes a break in continuous service.

Any employee separated due to a reduction-in-force shall be considered to have continuous service during the period of separation if re-employed within  months from the effective date of separation.

Employees who are transferred, demoted, or promoted are not considered to have had a break in continuous service.


Credited (any/all employment periods that can be used to achieve the next annual leave increment rate) service accrues each month.  An employee earns credited service for each month where he/she is in  status for  percent or more of the month.

Credited service applies to annual leave provisions outlined in the Annual Leave policy.
