House Bill 4755 amends Section 8-11-610 of the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to the computation of annual leave for state employees. The bill deletes the provision that limits the maximum annual leave allowed in one year to thirty days. Therefore, an employee would be permitted to use in excess of thirty days of annual leave if this bill is adopted.
The Office of Human Resources indicates that to delete this limitation of maximum annual leave would have no additional impact on the General Fund of the State. The impact of this bill would be a loss of productivity by an employee who would use over thirty days of annual leave.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 8-11-610 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 8-11-610. (A) Any A permanent full-time state employee is entitled to annual leave with pay, which is computed as follows:
For the first ten years of state service, he shall earn the employee earns one and one-fourth working days' leave for each month of full-time employment a year. After ten years he shall earn the employee earns a bonus of one and one-fourth working days' annual leave for each year of continuous service; however, the combined regular and bonus earnings shall may not exceed thirty days in any one year. No An employee is not required to use all of his annual leave in any one year. Any and unused annual leave may be accumulated, not to exceed forty-five days. Any An employee of a department which allowed an accumulation in excess of forty-five days, who, as of June 2, 1972, had accumulated annual leave in excess of forty-five days may carry over and retain the excess leave which is the maximum amount the employee may carry over into future years. If the employee subsequently reduces the amount of the leave carried over, the reduced amount, if in excess of forty-five days, is the employee's maximum carry-over into future years. If the employee further reduces the amount of the leave carried over to forty-five days or less, forty-five days is the maximum amount of unused annual leave the employee may accumulate. It is at the discretion of the department heads to determine the maximum number of consecutive days any an employee may have in any one period of leave. The total number of days of annual leave used in any one calendar year may not exceed thirty days.
(B) Provided, further, that Instructional personnel at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind whose positions are unclassified shall be are entitled to receive annual leave in the same manner as state employees and to utilize annual leave only as specified in the annual contract.
