Employee Sick and Vacation Policy details

  • Administrator Vacation Policy

    Administration Vacation Policy

    The College believes in the value of vacation days taken from work. Consequently, salary will not be given in lieu of vacation days not taken (with the exception of separation from employment). Vacation days are accrued on a per month worked basis and can be taken only as accrued, provided the immediate supervisor grants permission. Permission will depend upon the immediacy of the work situation.

    Length of vacation for administrators is as stated in the initial letter of employment. Mid-Level Administrators vacation days may be accrued to a maximum of 1.5 years worked. 

    Mid-Level Administrators monthly vacation accruals and maximum accrued vacation allowable is listed below.

    Any employee may take his/her vacation days following the months in which they have earned them; or he/she may accrue vacation days to the respective maximum allowable, but beyond that they are forfeited. 

    Upon separation of employment, the College will pay out no more than 1 year of the vacation accrual.

    Senior Administrators receive four weeks vacation and accrue their vacation at the rate of 12.5 hours per month.

    All other Administrators not working under a full-time, 12-month agreement should refer to their initial agreement for specific vacation policy.

  • Staff Vacation Policy

    Staff Vacation Policy

    The College believes in the value of vacation days taken from work. Consequently, salary will not be given in lieu of vacation days not taken (with the exception of separation from employment). Vacation days are accrued on a per month worked basis and can be taken as soon as they are earned, provided the immediate supervisor grants permission. Permission will depend upon the immediacy of the work situation.

    Vacation days may be accrued to a maximum of 1.5 years worked. 

    For staff employees, monthly vacation accruals and maximum accrued vacation allowable is listed below.

  • Employee Sick Leave Policy

    Each full-time administrative and staff employee shall be granted sick leave benefits of ten full
    days per year accrued every July 1 cumulative to a maximum of twenty-five (25) days.


    If an employee is ill, they are expected not to report to work and notify their supervisor. Employees may
    be asked to state in writing the reason for their absence. A doctor’s note may be required after three days
    or more for an absence in order to qualify for paid sick leave. The College reserves the right to obtain a
    physician’s opinion with a doctor of their own selection in order to qualify for sick leave.


    Furthermore, employees may use their sick time to tend to their spouse or dependents, and state in
    writing the reason for their absence. Once sick time is depleted, employees must use their vacation time
    for an absence of this nature. Accrued sick leave will not be paid out upon termination.
