Discretionary Day Reminder - Self Service Message

Message Text:


The Discretionary Day countdown message will be posted on the Important Notices section of the State Employee Services page www.kansas.gov/employee/ today (11/07/2007).

If you have any questions about the message, you may contact Brent Smith, Department of Administration, Division of Personnel Services at brent.smith@da.ks.gov .

We are also in the process of notifying agencies that have employees who may become eligible for the 2007 discretionary holiday due to their six month anniversary occurring during the 12/16/2007 to 12/29/2007 pay period. This will allow you time to notify these employees they will soon have a 2007 discretionary day that must be used by 12/29/2007 or it will be forfeited.

Following is a copy of the Self Service message:
”XX days left to use your 2007 Discretionary Day!* more…

*For eligible employees whose last workday of a week is Friday, the last day to use the 2007 Discretionary Day is Friday, December 28, 2007. For employees whose last workday of a week is Saturday, the last day to use the 2007 Discretionary Day is Saturday, December 29, 2007.

You can determine if you still have an available Discretionary Day by looking on the View Leave Balances page in the Employee Self Service Center located at www.kansas.gov/employee/ (click on the Self Service icon located in the Featured Sites area). If you see the words “Discretionary Holiday” on your View Leave Balances page, you still have a Discretionary Day available (Non-Regent employees).

A complete list of Executive Branch Holidays, including Discretionary Day usage dates, is located at www.da.ks.gov/ps/subject/holiday.htm (Note: Multiple years are listed).

Check with your agency Human Resource Office if you have questions.”
