A federal employee requested that 54 hours of annual leave forfeited by him at the end of the 1973 leave year be restored under the provisions of Public Law 93-181 after he received credit for an additional 50 hours of annual leave when his leave accrual rate was corrected in July 1973. The 24 hours of leave earned in the 1972 leave year and forfeited automatically upon correction of his leave accrual rate should be restored. The remaining 26 hours of annual leave forfeited at the end of the 1973 leave year were earned during that year and should have been used at that time. These hours cannot be restored.
