If the employee subsequently reduces the amount of the leave carried over, the reduced amount, if in excess of forty-five days, is the employee's maximum carry-over into future years. If the employee further reduces the amount of the leave carried over to forty-five days or less, forty-five days is the maximum amount of unused annual leave the employee may accumulate. It is at the discretion of the department heads to determine the maximum number of consecutive days any an employee may have in any one period of leave. Annual leave taken in excess of thirty days in a calendar year is subject to department head approval. The total number of days of annual leave used in any one calendar year may not exceed thirty days.
