AGO 1960 NO. 99 > Jan 29 1960

The department of highways is required to pay accrued vacation leave to employees whose employment has been terminated but may not pay such leave to those who, at the notice of termination, transferred to another agency or another position within the department without such interruption in their employment as would indicate termination of their contract with the state government.  Such employees are entitled only to credit for such accrued vacation leave.  The department may prescribe rules and regulations covering accrued annual leave for those employees who transferred to another position within the department.
