With reasonable advance notice and the approval of the department head, an employee may be given time off for reasons of a personal nature. Examples are personal emergencies or scheduled business such as a mortgage closing or other necessary personal business that must be conducted during business hours.
Regular full-time employees are eligible for up to two paid days during the fiscal year. Regular employees who work a minimum of 20 hours a week or on an academic year basis are eligible for excused time pay benefits on a prorated basis.
Excused time during the first fiscal year of employment is prorated at the rate of .67 days for each four-month period worked. Excused time is not carried over to the next fiscal year.
