All full-time, 12 month employees are entitled to five days of vacation with pay upon employment, provided the employee remains employed for a minimum of 11 ½ months. These initial five days must be used prior to first accrual date. Ten paid vacation days after 11 1/2 months of employment. One additional vacation day is added for each consecutive year of service beyond 5 consecutive years. Maximum total vacation period is 3 weeks (15 days). Vacation leave must be taken within the 12-month period between accrual dates, and may be requested in half hour increments. Employees are allowed to carry-over up to five (5) unused vacation days beyond the annual accrual date (excluding the initial 5 days). All vacation time must be approved by the appropriate supervisor. Vacation leave is discouraged during peak usage times throughout departments, such as the week just prior to the beginning of the fall or spring college semester and for the first week of that semester, except for programs with specifically designated vacation times. Supervisors may deny vacation leave requests that will impede the ability of their departments to function at full capacity during peak usage times.
