Advanced Leave will be approved when it’s known (or reasonably expected), that the employee will return to duty.
Employees who separate from service with an advanced leave balance are required to refund the amount of leave advanced.
Employees pending separation will not be advanced leave which exceeds the amount that can be repaid by accrual before their date of separation
Advanced Leave must be approved PRIOR to employee’s utilizing advanced leave codes in ATAAPS.
Advanced Annual Leave
Advanced Annual Leave may be granted in an amount not to exceed the amount an employee would accrue within the leave year. Check your LES to determine your rate of Leave Accrual.
Advanced annual leave may be liquidated by subsequently earned annual leave or by a refund upon separation from Federal service.
Employees requesting advanced annual leave should fill out the Advanced Annual Leave Request form and submit it to their supervisor for their (recommended) approval / disapproval. The supervisor should then forward the request to HRO for final approval and processing.
