SECTION 4: TIME NOT WORKED
4.9 SHORT TERM ABSENCES (UNPAID)
When your work performance, attitude, and absence record are satisfactory and you have given proper advance notice, your supervisor may grant you up to two working days off without pay upon your request to attend to a personal matter. First you must have exhausted your accrued vacation time. The Vice President of Human Resources must approve time off without pay in excess of two working days.
The College will make every effort to accommodate you if you request time off from work for a religious holiday not observed by the College. Such a request will be approved, without pay, as long as there is no interference with normal operations. If you prefer to take the day off with pay, you may use a vacation day for this purpose. Or, with your supervisor's approval, you may arrange to work on one of the established College holidays instead, and use a floating holiday for your religious holiday.
