All full-time non-faculty employees are entitled to the following paid college holidays:
- Labor Day
- One October Study Day (a college designated Monday or Tuesday during the month of October)
- Wednesday before Thanksgiving
- Thanksgiving day
- Friday following Thanksgiving
- Christmas Day
- New Year's Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Two religious holy days (Department Heads must be notified in advance)
- In addition Martin Luther King Day will be considered a paid college holiday in the years in which classes are not held on the holiday.
If a paid holiday falls within an employee's approved vacation period, an additional day off with pay will be allowed.
In some years, the College schedule requires partial or full staff coverage on a College-designated holiday (such as Labor Day or October Study Day). Employees should be aware that they might be expected to work on such a holiday as part of their responsibility to the needs of the College and its students. Notification of required coverage during such a holiday will be made in writing (in advance of the holiday) by your Department Head and the Director of Human Resources. If work on a holiday causes the hours worked to include straight or premium overtime, then overtime policies will apply.
Any full-time non-exempt office employee who must work on a College-designated holiday will receive equivalent compensatory time off for the hours worked as well as his or her normal pay. Except in the circumstances mentioned above, employees may not choose to work on these days in order to hold them over for use at other times of the year.
Regular part-time employees are paid only for those holidays that fall on their regularly scheduled workdays. A regular part-time non-exempt office employee who must work on a College-designated holiday that falls on his or her regularly scheduled work day will receive equivalent compensatory time off for the hours worked as well as his or her normal pay.
Casual employees who work regularly but less than 21 hours each week will be paid only for those holidays that fall on their regularly scheduled workdays.
Temporary and casual employees who work irregularly or on an "on-call" basis are paid only for actual hours worked and, therefore, receive no paid holidays.
Observance of two religious holy days will also be considered paid holidays for regular full time and regular part time employees.
