Nov. 19 deadline to enroll in PEP for 2020


You have through Tuesday, November 19, to enroll in state’s Productivity Enhancement Program for 2020.

PEP allows eligible PS&T Unit members to cash out vacation time and/or personal leave in return for credits toward their employee share of their health insurance premiums.

The negotiated terms of the program are contained in the PEP Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the Teachers’ PEP MOU, which can be found on pages 120-123 of the 2016-2019 PS&T Contract. Although these MOUs expire on December 31, 2019, the state has agreed to extend the program for 2020 in accordance with the cash out rates set forth in these MOUs.

The Attendance and Leave Policy Bulletin Number 2019-05, which implements the PEP for 2020, can be found at https://www.cs.ny.gov/attendance_leave/pb19-05.pdf.
