Section 707 - Personnel Policies, Rules and Regulations

Employees accrue vacation credits and are eligible for paid vacation. For purposes of computing vacation credit, an employee who works eleven (11) or more days in a monthly pay period is considered to have completed a month of service or continuous service. When an absence without pay of more than eleven (11) consecutive working days falls into two (2) consecutive qualifying monthly pay periods, only one (1) of the pay periods is disqualified.

Service requirements below are in terms of full-time service. Service requirements shall be pro-rata for employees who work less than full-time.

Employees under some collective bargaining unit agreements may accrue vacation credits at a different rate (e.g., SSP-AR classifications in the Unit 4 agreement accrue 16.0 hours or 2 days of vacation per month).

Vacation scheduling is to be arranged according to the provisions of the appropriate collective bargaining agreement.
