Update on Discretionary Day
This year employees have until December 31, 2016 to use their 2016 discretionary day. The discretionary day for 2017 will not be available until January 1, 2017.
The discretionary day must be used by the last day of the final pay period each calendar year. This year, the final pay period is December 18, 2016 to December 31, 2016 making December 31st the last day to use the discretionary day. Please note that the 2017 discretionary day will not be available during the Christmas break. This is different than some years where employees earn their discretionary day for the next year prior to the Christmas break closure and have that day available for use during the break.
Employees may determine if they have an available discretionary day by logging into the Employee Self Service/HRIS. If a line for "D-Day" appears, there is an available discretionary day. Note: "D-Day" will not have any hours appearing under the balance. Once the Discretionary Day is used, this line will disappear.
