As communicated to TIM Administrators previously – Earlier this year, the legislature granted a one-time award of five days, 40 hours, prorated for part-time employees, was granted to permanent EHRA and SHRA employees who were active in TIM on July 1, 2018. The hours, “Bonus 2018 No Payout”, were loaded into TIM effective as of July 1, 2018. These hours remain available during the length of the employee’s employment, have no cash value, and cannot be paid out at the end of employment or applied to Total State Service.
As you are aware, Vacation leave amounts of more than 30 days (240 hours) on December 31 are transferred to the Sick leave accrual on Jan. 1. The Special Annual Bonus 2018 leave included a provision that each hour of the Bonus 2018 leave used during a calendar year will be deducted from the amount of Vacation leave transferred to Sick leave accrual.
After 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, the calculated amount will be deducted from these employees’ Jan. 1 Sick balances in TIM. This will happen automatically. No action is needed in TIM.
The “TIM Bonus 2018: Rollover Adjustments” reference card attached to this email provides detailed information on how the deduction from Sick is determined.
See the N.C. Office of State Human Resources detailed description of the FY 2018-2019 Special Annual Leave Bonus.
