LEAVE UPON TRANSFER
- Upon discharge from ship tour and before authorized leave expires, CIVMARs are to communicate with the CIVMAR Support Center (CSC) that will convey to respective Marine Placement Specialist (MPS) via email, facsimile, or telephone and submit a “Request for Leave or Approved Absence (OPM 71)” with medical documentation as apropos when additional vacation time or sick leave is desired.
- Upon discharge from ship tour and before returning for duty from vacation, CIVMARs are to communicate with the CSC that will convey to respective MPS via e-mail, facsimile, or telephone with regard to administrative requirements (i.e. medical surveillance programs, professional credentials, etc.) that need to be reviewed and accomplished.
- Report to CSU for duty on that Sunday (if residence is outside of 50 miles) or Monday (if residence is within 50 miles) with copies of all training certificates, passport, credentials, and etc. Note: If Monday is a holiday, then shift report for duty dates by one day.
ANNUAL LEAVE "USE OR LOSE" Reminder
Employees are reminded to review their annual leave balance to include any expiring restored leave, and submit their leave requests for the remainder of the calendar year to their supervisor. It is both the supervisor and employee's responsibility to plan and schedule annual leave throughout the leave year in such a way that adequate staff is available to meet workload requirements and forfeiture of annual leave is avoided.
