Vacation leave maybe accumulated in excess of the legal forty-four day maximum during any calendar year; but each January 1, unused vacation in excess of the forty-four day (330 hours) maximum shall be canceled.

Professional staff (Grades 15 and above) earns 6.25 hours of Professional Staff Accrued Leave (PSAL) each month, up to a maximum of 10 days per year. On an annual basis, the College may grant employees the option to convert PSAL to a cash payment. Employees are also allowed to schedule PSAL, up to the balance available.

To earn a day of sick leave monthly, the employee must be in a pay status on or before the 15th day of the month. College employees may accumulate an unlimited number of sick leave hours.

Each year the college conducts a Sick Leave Pool enrollment period. Eligible employees are those who have completed at least 12 calendar months of employment and who have a sick leave balance of at least 10 days at the time of enrollment.

Employees joining the sick leave pool donate 5 days from their sick leave balance. Should a member exhaust his or her own sick leave, the member is eligible to use a maximum of 30 days from the sick leave pool in a consecutive twelve-month period. Use of days from the pool is limited to the member's personal illness, accident or injury.

All full-time personnel are eligible to use four days of their accrued sick leave each fiscal year (or academic year for faculty) for personal reasons.
