Weather Emergency Personnel 

Each senior administrator will inform each administrator or staff member in his/her unit whether or not the job they hold is defined as a weather-emergency position. Persons who take or retain such positions need to make advance arrangements for reliable and safe means of travel between their homes (or temporary quarters) and campus, even in inclement weather.

Weather emergency personnel will be compensated by earning compensatory time for the hours they are working on campus when the campus is closed.  For example, if an employee who normally works an 8 hour shift, would receive 8 hours in compensatory time when working in the even the College is closed.

 

Early Dismissal

All non-weather-emergency personnel may depart at the designated time without need of compensating for the time missed.  Weather emergency personnel must check with their supervisors to ascertain their schedules.
