New Process for TDL Conversion Begins April 1

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 31, 2017) — The annual period for UK employees to convert their temporary disability leave (TDL) to additional vacation leave (VL) will open April 1, and this year, UK Human Resources has made the process simpler.

Starting April 1, employees may request conversion of TDL hours to additional vacation leave through Employee Self Service in myUK. Employees should log in to myUK, access Employee Self Service, and click the Working Time and Leave Requests link.

Click the TDL to Vacation Leave Conversion link to download the conversion form, which will have instructions on how to submit it to the Enterprise Applications Group, which administers Employee Self Service, or UK HealthCare payroll, depending on where the employee works.

Each April, employees who have more than 66 days of TDL may convert those hours to additional vacation leave. The conversion rate is three days of TDL for one day of VL.

Learn more about TDL conversion by reading the UK Human Resources policy and procedure.
