Bonus Leave Payout Program

TO: All UNCG Benefits Eligible Employees
FROM: Michelle Lamb Moone, Associate Vice Chancellor & Chief Human Resources Officer

At various times over the past 15 years, the North Carolina General Assembly has awarded bonus leave in lieu of salary increases to the UNCG’s leave-earning employees. UNCG is now offering eligible employees the opportunity to cash in bonus leave benefits by participating in a voluntary Bonus Leave Payout Program.

Program Details: Eligible employees may request to be paid out a minimum of five hours and a maximum of 20 hours of accrued bonus leave.

Requests for a payout must be made using the electronic form embedded in the 2017 Bonus Leave Payout FAQs or via the following link: http://web.uncg.edu/hrs/Benefits/Bonus_Leave_Payout/.

All requests must be submitted by no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, June 9, 2017. Once a Payout Request Form has been submitted, a request may be later reversed by submitting a formal email to Emily Foust at e_foust@uncg.edu. Reversal emails must be submitted by no later than noon on Friday, June 9, 2017.

Additional provisions include:

  • Participation in the program is strictly voluntary. Those who are eligible, but do not wish to cash in any eligible bonus leave are under no obligation to do so. Your bonus leave will remain in place.
  • Bonus leave payments will be subject to retirement contributions and supplemental tax rates totaling 44.25% of the gross payment.
  • Bonus leave payment amounts will be calculated based on the employee’s current annual salary.
  • Bonus leave payments will be included in the June 2017 payroll.

How to Request a Payout: Employees who are interested in participating in the program will follow these instructions:
1) Review the Bonus Leave Payout FAQs (http://web.uncg.edu/hrs/Benefits/Bonus_Leave_Payout/) to ensure understanding of all aspects of the program and to acknowledge reading the FAQs.
2) Click the “Request Bonus Leave Payout” box to be automatically directed to a second FAQs page. (This registers your review of the FAQs.)
3) Click the “Next” box to submit details of your payout request and to complete the request form.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not you have a bonus leave balance, are having difficulties completing the online form, or have questions regarding specific aspects of the program, please contact Emily Foust, Benefits Manager at e_foust@uncg.edu or (336) 256-0342.
