CHAPTER V

ANNUAL AND SPECIAL LEAVE

Rule 5.1 Annual leave

(a) Staff members shall accrue annual leave while in full pay status at the rate of six weeks a year, subject to the provisions of rule 5.2 (c). No leave shall accrue while a staff member is receiving compensation equivalent to salary and allowances under rule 6.4.

(b) (i) Annual leave may be taken in units of days and half days; (ii) Leave may be taken only when authorized. If a staff member is absent from work without authorization, payment of salary and allowances shall cease for the period of unauthorized absence. However, if, in the opinion of the Secretary-General, the absence was caused by reasons beyond the staff member's control, and the staff member has accrued annual leave, the absence will be charged to that leave;

(iii) All arrangements as to leave shall be subject to the exigencies of the service, which may require that leave be taken by a staff member during a period designated by the Secretary-General. The personal circumstances and preferences of the individual staff member shall, as far as possible, be considered.

(c) Annual leave may be accumulated, provided that not more than twelve weeks of such leave shall be carried forward beyond 1 January of any year. (d) A staff member may, in exceptional circumstances, be granted advance annual leave up to a maximum of two weeks, provided his or her service is expected to continue for a period beyond that necessary to accrue the leave so advanced.

Rule 5.2 Special leave

(a) (i) Special leave may be granted at the request of a staff member for

advanced study or research in the interest of the Authority, in cases of extended illness, for child care or for other important reasons for such period as the Secretary-General may prescribe. In exceptional cases, the Secretary-General may, at his initiative, place a staff member on special leave with full pay if he considers such leave to be in the interest of the Authority.
