VI. 607 - Personal Days
Personal days are an all purpose time-off policy for eligible staff members to use for personal business. Regular, full-time staff members are eligible to earn and use personal days as described in this policy.
Up to 16 hours of paid personal leave will be provided to eligible staff members at the beginning of each fiscal year (June 1 through May 31).
Eligible staff members may use personal hours according to the schedule below. However, before personal days can be used, a waiting period of 6 months must be completed. After that time, staff members can request personal days.
Personal days can be used in minimum increments of one hour. Staff members who have an unexpected need to be absent from work should notify their direct supervisor 24 hours before the scheduled start of their workday if possible.
To schedule planned personal days, staff members should request advance approval from their supervisors. Requests will be reviewed based on a number of factors, including business needs and staffing requirements.
Personal days are paid at the staff member's base pay rate at the time of absence.
Personal days are not cumulative nor can they be paid at termination of employment. Personal days are intended to provide regular, full-time staff members with paid time in the event that personal obligations require absence from the job.
Personal days may not be used in conjunction with any other type of leave.
