If the employee elects to use Floating Day on a scheduled work day of more than eight (8) hours, the employee may use annual leave to make up for the time in excess of eight (8) hours. If the employee elects to use Floating Day on a scheduled workday of less than 8 hours, the employee cannot apply partial Floating Day on another day.
