Benefits: Time away

Time away from work

Vacation

Time away from work is important to refresh and rejuvenate! The college provides eligible employees with paid time off to use for personal and vacation days. Up to two weeks of additional unpaid time may be requested by completing the unpaid vacation form. Time off is scheduled at the mutual convenience of the employee and supervisor. Vacation may not be carried over each calendar year. See handbook for more information.

Paid time off bank Top

Part-time hourly staff between half-time and full-time receive a bank of hours to be used at the employee’s discretion with supervisor approval for paid time off – including time for vacation, illness or family care. This time off is calculated in the same manner as vacation time for full-time hourly staff and then prorated on the basis of the employee’s FTE. This paid time off must be used during the calendar year during which it is received; any unused time will be forfeited at the end of the year. If you have additional questions about the paid time off bank, please contact human resources.

Holidays

The college provides eligible employees with twelve holidays as determined by the college each year. The holiday calendar will be posted by October for the following calendar year.
