14 DE Admin. Code 712
The Secretary of Education intends to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave. This regulation is being amended as part of the 2016 Regulation Review as required by 29 Del.C. §10407. Public comment was received for this regulation which asked the Department of Education to include language that requires current employees to use their annual leave in a lump sum when retired/terminated so that a new employee can be hired. The Department consulted with Human Resources Directors on the comment and found that this was a not a concern and they did not support the change as requested. The Department did make changes to the annual leave portion of the regulation for purposes of clarification.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the News Journal and the Delaware State News on January 1, 2017 in the form hereto attached as Exhibit "A". No comments were received for this regulation.
The Secretary finds that it is appropriate to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave only to make minor changes to the annual leave portion of the regulation for purposes of clarification.
For the foregoing reasons, the Secretary concludes that it is appropriate to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave. Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122, 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave attached hereto as Exhibit "B" is hereby amended. Pursuant to the provision of 14 Del.C. §122(e), 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave hereby amended shall be in effect for a period of five years from the effective date of this order as set forth in Section V. below.
The text of 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave amended hereby shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "B", and said regulation shall be cited as 14 DE Admin. Code 712 Employee Leave in the Administrative Code of Regulations for the Department of Education.
The actions hereinabove referred to were taken by the Secretary pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122 on February 16, 2017. The effective date of this Order shall be ten (10) days from the date this Order is published in the Delaware Register of Regulations.
IT IS SO ORDERED the 16th day of February 2017.
Department of Education
Approved this 16th day of February 2017
Subject to any limitation imposed by statute, accumulated annual leave shall be paid upon termination of employment. The employee employer may allow the employee to either remain on the regular payroll until such time as all annual leave is exhausted, or receive a lump sum payment for all unused annual leave on in the employee's final paycheck. The vacated position may be filled at any time provided that the two employees do not receive compensation for the same pay period. Accumulated annual leave shall not be transferred between different employing state agencies or school districts.
