5 CFR 630.1307 - Crediting annual leave accounts of eligible returnees.
(a) OPM shall divide the contributed annual leave equally among eligible returnees without regard to any factor (e.g., full- or part-time status, duty station during the Persian Gulf War, or time spent on active duty) other than each employee's status as an eligible returnee.
(b) The amount of annual leave each eligible returnee receives shall be rounded to the next higher quarter-hour. An employing agency may not reduce the amount of leave credited to an eligible returnee by any fraction of an hour, but may grant leave recipients excused absence for the remainder of the hour or charge leave by the quarter-hour for the purpose of this program.
(d) Each agency shall credit the annual leave accounts of eligible returnees who have returned to Federal employment as soon as possible, but not later than the end of the second pay period beginning on or after the date the agency is notified of the amount of leave each eligible returnee is to receive.
