Vacation Accrual Rate
All TDCJ employees earn vacation hours each month based on total years of State employment. Vacation leave may be used after six months of continuous State service.
For purposes of computing vacation accrual rates for a working retiree who retired from state employment on or after June 1, 2005, months of state service include only the months of state service accrued after retirement.
|Years of State Service||Monthly Accrual||Maximum Carryover|
|0 - less than 2||8 hours||180 hours|
|2 - less than 5||9 hours||244 hours|
|5 - less than 10||10 hours||268 hours|
|10 - less than 15||11 hours||292 hours|
|15 - less than 20||13 hours||340 hours|
|20 - less than 25||15 hours||388 hours|
|25 - less than 30||17 hours||436 hours|
|30 - less than 35||19 hours||484 hours|
|35+||21 hours||532 hours|
An employee's vacation balance over the maximum carryover converts to Sick Leave from one fiscal year to the next (September – August).
