Paid leaves of absence will be granted to full-time and regular part-time employees who have completed their three month trial period. No paid leaves of absence will be granted during an employee's trial period. Regular part-time employees will be paid at their normal part-time rate for the above leaves.

Employees must notify their Department Heads and the Human Resources Office of the necessity for the  following reasons:

  • 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.
  • Bereavement Leave

    The Bereavement Leave Policy establishes uniform guidelines for providing paid time off to full-time and regular part-time active employees, who have completed their three-month trial period for absences related to the death of immediate family members.

    Immediate family shall be limited spouse, domestic partner, child, stepchild, parent, stepparent, father-in-law, mother, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, grandparent, grandchild or an adult who stood in loco parentis to the employee during childhood.


    An employee who wishes to take time off due to the death of an immediate family member should notify their supervisor as soon as possible.

    In addition to bereavement leave, an employee may use available vacation for additional approved time off by supervisor as necessary.

    The employee may be required to submit documentation to Human Resources substantiating the death or the memorial service.

    Paid bereavement leave will be granted and to be taken proximate to the date of death or memorial services according to the following guidelines:

    • Full time employees are allowed up to five (5) days off from regularly scheduled.
    • Regular part-time employees will be paid at their normal part-time days.
