Vacation Days

Vacation and Personal time is dependent on your job title and continuous years of service to the College.

Vacation time is earned by all regular full-time and part-time employees working at least twenty (20) hours per week. Vacation provides a period of rest and relaxation away from your job so you may return better prepared to perform your job duties and responsibilities. Pay in lieu of vacation is not permitted.

You must be employed at least three (3) months before you request paid vacation time. If you leave before three (3) months you will not be paid for any accrued unused vacation time.

*Note: Hours per hour accrual rate is based on scheduled work hours only. Additional hours above and beyond the ordinary work schedule (i.e. overtime) do not count towards vacation accrual.

Because of scheduling requirements, vacation may at times be taken in advance of fully earning it. If you terminate before accruing all the vacation time taken, the unearned portion will be withheld from your final paycheck. Please refer to the Employee Handbook for a full explanation of the vacation policy & procedures.
