Discretionary Day

The last day to use 2014 Discretionary Day is Saturday, December 20, 2014.

Discretionary Day displays as "D-Day" in Employee Self Service. If "D-Day" appears, a discretionary day is available.

The Discretionary Day balance appears on the Leave Accrual Report as 24 hours for eligible employees who have not used their Discretionary Day. This does not mean that every employee has a 24-hour discretionary day balance or three 8-hour discretionary days. The 24-hour balance allows employees who normally work greater than 8 hours a day to take the entire day off without using additional leave. All employees are limited to using the discretionary day on a single day.

For example, if an employee normally works 8-hour days and chooses to use their Discretionary Day (8 hours) the earnings code DDY or DDE will be recorded in HRIS. After DDY or DDE is recorded in time and leave, "D-Day" will discontinue appearing in Employee Self Service. The remaining hours (16 hours in this example) will appear in the employee's "Adjusted Year-to-Date" balance.
