|TO:||ALL APPOINTING AUTHORITIES, HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICERS, AND RECOGNIZED EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATIONS
|FROM:||JEREMY S. STEPHENS STATE PERSONNEL DIRECTOR
|SUBJECT:||CIVIL SERVICE REGULATION 5.09, ANNUAL, PERSONAL, AND SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION LEAVE
|Civil Service regulation 5.09 is being amended to address using annual leave to extend employment. The new language appears at Standard 3.A.3.d of regulation 5.09. The change is to address issues arising from the short notice for the election period for the incentivized retirement plan available under MCL 38.19j. The amendments will allow annual leave to be used to extend employment for three days during November and December of 2010, or longer if authorized by the State Personnel Director. For example, an appointing authority might request approval for an employee with preexisting travel plans made before the incentivized retirement program was enacted.
In accordance with Standard C of Regulation 1.01, Issuance of Civil Service Regulations, the attached regulation is being issued with an effective date of October 31, 2010.
Questions regarding these regulations may be directed to Janet McClelland, Chief Deputy Director, Civil Service Commission, P.O. Box 30002, Lansing, Michigan, 48909.
