It is the policy of the BOCC to budget and appropriate sufficient funds in each budget year to pay the estimated and expected expenditures occurring during that fiscal year for the payout of accrued vacation and sick leave to employees who have retired or otherwise terminated their employment with the County in good standing.
Such funds shall be included in the Countywide (non-departmental) budget within the General Fund and shall be available for use in making such payments on behalf of all departments and agencies.
The County Manager shall establish procedures that define the eligibility criteria for vacation and sick leave payouts.
Elected officials, agency directors, and department directors are responsible for notifying the Director of Human Resources of any known separations or retirements that will occur in the upcoming fiscal year. The Director of Human Resources is responsible for compiling this separation/retirement information and providing the relevant information to the Director of Budget and Financial Planning and the Director of Treasury and Financial Management.
