Time Off

 

Benefits-eligible Administrative and Support staff and Administrative Faculty are granted Holidays. Regular Faculty members are not paid for such days off; they are, however, granted up to three (3) faculty release days during the nine month academic year (see the section entitled "Faculty Release Days").

Holidays

The College observes eight (8) Holidays. On these days, Benefits-eligible Administrative and Support staff and Administrative Faculty employees will be paid although the College is officially closed. These holidays are:

New Year's Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Friday after Thanksgiving
Christmas Day

 

Holidays will always result in a weekday off with pay. Holidays falling on a Saturday will be observed on the preceding Friday; those falling on a Sunday will be observed on the following Monday.

All Benefits-eligible Administrative and Support staff employees and Administrative Faculty will be entitled to pay at their normal rate for Holidays provided they are in pay status on their last scheduled workday before the holiday and the first scheduled workday after the holiday. In order to be in pay status an employee must be actively working or on an approved leave of absence with pay using accrued vacation or sick leave.

Employees are ineligible for holiday pay under the following conditions:

  • if the holiday occurs while the employee is on an approved leave of absence without pay from the College

  • if the holiday occurs the day before a new employee's hire date, or the day after any employee's termination date

  • if the employee is non-benefits-eligible

  • if the employee is a regular faculty member

Benefits-eligible employees who work less than 100% time will receive holiday pay proportionate to their employment assignment, provided they are in pay status.

Benefits-eligible hourly employees required to work on Holidays in order to maintain essential services will be compensated at the rate of one and one-half times their normal pay rate, in addition to their pay for the holiday.
