GOER approves Dec. 31, 2022, extension to annual leave expiration date

The New York State Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER) has announced agreements with all employee unions on an extension of the upcoming annual leave expiration date.

All unused annual leave can now be carried through Dec. 31, 2022.

This extension applies to all SUNY New Paltz employees, including management/confidential (M/C) employees, who would otherwise forfeit unused annual leave at the end of 2021.

This extends an accommodation that was first agreed upon last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as travel restrictions and other circumstances caused many state employees to defer taking time off that they would otherwise have used.

Employees with questions about the extension of the leave expiration date can contact Payroll at payroll@newpaltz.edu.
