Vacation, Sick, Personal and Holiday Time

Vacation, Sick, Personal and Holiday Time

Vacation and sick time allotments vary depending on an employee’s specific bargaining unit agreement.  Employees should refer directly to the applicable agreement for detailed information. 

Non-aligned employees accrue vacation at 105 or 140 hours per year, depending on the level of the position.  All non-aligned employees accrue 105 hours of sick time per year.  Unused vacation time may be accrued up to two years, at which point it is capped until usage of time decreases the vacation bank below the capped level.  Please refer to the non-aligned vacation policy for additional information.

Full time employees earn 3 personal days per fiscal year. These days may be used for emergencies, observance of any religious holidays, personal business and attendance at a funeral. If these days are not used by June 30th, they are forfeited.  New employees accrue these 3 days at a rate of ½ day per month worked until the 3 days is reached.

For further details, please refer to your respective bargaining unit agreement for specific information regarding vacation, sick, personal and floating holiday time.
