Vacation Days
Vacation days may not be taken during the 90 day orientation period of a new employee. Vacation days may not be taken until earned - one day is earned per each 200 cumulative hours worked, a "day" having been defined in the policy. If a vacation falls at a time when the College is officially closed, the employee may take an alternate day. Vacation time is not cumulative, and will be forfeited unless taken (1) during the fiscal year earned; or (2) during the following fiscal year, with written approval of the departmental administrator.

Sick Days
Sick days will not be compensated for until earned. The sick days will accumulate to a maximum of fifteen (15) days until the employee terminates or is appointed to a full-time position at the College. Unused sick days may be equated and carried over to the full-time position.

General Guidelines
Part-time employees must have a regular weekly work schedule and work the same number of hours and days each week. Supervisors will verify hours worked and submit the time sheets to Payroll where the hours will be accumulated to determine eligibility for vacation and sick days. Vacation and sick days will be noted on the time sheet as they are used, but will not be counted toward further accumulation of vacation and sick days (see attached sample). If the College is closed due to an emergency (ie., snow, power outage) during a regularly scheduled work time, the day will be counted as time worked, and the employee will be paid. Copies of the hourly records will be forwarded to Human Resources quarterly so that the employees may be notified of their earned vacation and sick time.
