The State Attendance Rules and the various negotiated Agreements provide for a lump sum liquidation of vacation and certain other leave credits whenever an employee is separated from State service. All separations are effective at the close of business on the last day the employee actually renders services. Leave credits payments are made by a separate check, for which payroll documents are submitted two payroll periods after the date of separation (Department of Audit and Control regulation). The leave credit payment is received on the third payday after the effective date of the separation.
