     V. Sabbatical Leave Interpreted.

     President Dickey submitted the following letter from Frank J. Welch,
Director of Agricultural Extension Service:



                                                           October 14, 1957

     Mr. Frank D, Peterson
     Vice-President Business Administration
     University of Kentucky

     Dear Mr. Peterson:

     The method we have been using to pay our Agricultural Extension people
     while on sabbatical leave, which as you know is the payment of one-half
     salary for the period of such leave, is a distinct disadvantage when the
     benefits lost on U.S.D.A. life insurance and civil service retirement
     are taken into consideration,

     The amount of U. S. D.A. life insurance for which an individual is
     eligible to qualify is based on the amount of his annual salary.  When
     an extension employee goes on sabbatical leave, his salary is reduced
     one-half, therefore, his insurance is reduced one-half.  For example.
     if an individual earns $6000, 00 a year prior to going on sabbatical
     leave, he would have $6000 U. S.D. A. life insurance.  When sabbatical
     leave becomes effective, his salary and insurance are reduced to
     $3, 000. 00 per year.

     Civiil Service retirement is based on the high five year average annual
     salary an individual has earned while working under federal appointment.
     We automatically reduce the employee' s salary to one-half during his
     sabbatical leave which could adversely affect his retirement benefits
     if such period was included in his high five year average salary base.

     The U. S. D. An life insurance regulations allow up to one year leave
     without pay with full coverage without payment of premium by the
     employee or employer.  Civil Service retirement regulations permit
     six months leave without pay without such time being figured in the
     high five year average,




 




9



      Therefore, it is recommended that our paying procedures be changed to
      permit our extension employees to have leave without pay the first half
      of sabbatical leave and leave with full pay the second half of such leave.
      In so doing, the individual will not receive more pay during the period
      of sabbatical leave with full pay than he would have received had he
      been on sabbatical leave with half pay for the entire period of such
      leave.

      In following the recommended procedure, each case will be submitted
      separately and a statement will be made on the CPR-1 stating the
      entire period of sabbatical leave, the period of leave without pay, and
      the period of leave with full pay.

      If you have any questions concerning the above procedure, I would be
      glad to discuss with'you at any time.

                                                   Sincerely,


                                     (Signed)     Frank J, Welch
                                                   Dean and Director




      President Dickey stated that, since the persons involved would be entitled
to a year' s leave of absence with half-pay, he knew no objection to giving the
person or persons a half-year' s leave without pay and a half-year' s leave with
full pay, and since it would take care of a technicality in Federal law, he
recommended that the request be granted, with the understanding that this
does not in any case affect the regulations pertaining to sabbatical leave
other than to permit a person to take the first half of the year without pay,
and to make the adjustment during the last half of the year.

      Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Committee concurred
in the recommendation of the President.
