A former civilian employee appealed the disallowance of his claim for a lump-sum payment for 30 hours of annual leave. The claim was denied because the employee had not served 90 days as required by 5 U.S.C. 6303. Although employees with temporary appointments of 90 days or more may now have leave credited before 90 days of service are completed, there is no authority for retroactive application in this case. Disallowance of the claim was sustained.
