The College provides paid vacation for eligible employees on an accrual basis, beginning the first day of employment. Vacation can be used as soon as it is accrued, with no waiting period, as long as the employee has the required approvals (see below). Staff employees working 1950 hours per year accrue vacation based on the chart below. Vacation hours accrued by employees working at least 1040 hours but fewer than 1950 hours per year are prorated based on percentage of hours and months worked. Employees working less than 1040 hours per year do not accrue vacation. Vacation does not accrue during unpaid leaves of absence.
