College Policy Number/Title:
The college grants full-time and part-time, budgeted employees personal leave; personal leave is prorated for budgeted part-time employees. Personal leave is available to employees during the probationary period.
Personal leave is intended for religious holidays and observance, funerals of individuals not in the immediate family, extension of sick leave, FMLA covered events, and urgent personal business which can only be handled during the business day. All requests for personal leave should be submitted on a "Request for Leave" form. At the end of the fiscal year, unused personal leave will be credited to the employee's sick leave balance.
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
An employee may use personal leave for FMLA covered events; such leave will be used concurrently with FMLA approved leave. Whenever an employee requests leave for an FMLA covered event, the employee shall be required to exhaust all accrued sick leave, annual leave, and personal leave prior to being placed in unpaid leave status. See procedure 63.08.15 "Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Leave."
Amount of Personal Leave Granted
Full-time, budgeted employees receive four personal leave days each fiscal year, while part-time budgeted employees receive personal leave on a prorated basis to reflect the percentage of a full-work schedule the employee is authorized to work.
New full-time employees are granted personal leave on the following basis; part-time and ten-month employees are granted personal leave on a pro-rated basis.
