Short-Term Paid Leaves of Absence
Paid leaves of absence will be granted to full-time and regular part-time employees who have completed their three month trial period for the following reasons:
- Bereavement Leave
Bereavement leave of up to five days will be granted in the event of a death in the employee's immediate family.
- Required Attendance at Court
Full pay will continue during the period of required attendance up to a maximum of three days in any fiscal year. Evidence of required attendance must be provided to the Department Head or the Director of Human Resources prior to the leave.
- Jury Duty
Full pay will continue during jury duty attendance. Employees are expected to reimburse the College for any amounts paid to them by the court for jury duty attendance. Occasionally, employees on jury duty are excused early in the day. Should this occur, employees are expected to return to the College for the balance of the working day.
Employees must notify their Department Heads and the Human Resources Office of the necessity for the above leaves.
Regular part-time employees will be paid at their normal part-time rate for the above leaves. No paid leaves of absence will be granted during an employee's trial period.
