Annual & Sick Leave

To help eligible employees maintain the balance of personal and work life, federal employees are offered a generous amount of annual and sick leave. Employees accrue annual leave at a rate of 4 hours every pay period with less than 3 years of service, 6 hours every pay period with 3 to 15 years of service, and 8 hours every pay period with 15 + years of service. Sick leave is accrued at a constant rate of 4 hours every pay period.
