Sick, Vacation, Personal, Family Medical Leave
Sick, Vacation and Personal Leave
Sick leave is earned each pay period totaling 15 days a year. Employees that work less than 12 months a year will receive pro-rated amounts of sick leave. Sick leave credits are cumulative. There is no cap on the amount of sick leave you may carry. Sick leave credits can be paid out only upon retirement. This is at a 20% rate. An automatic 7.5 hours is assigned to a Sick Bank unless HR is notified by October 30 each year.
Vacation leave is earned each pay period equaling 22 days a year. Employees that work less than 12 months a year will receive pro-rated amounts of vacation leave. Vacation leave credits are cumulative up to 64 days.
On January 1st of each year, the employee receives 22 ½ hours of personal leave. Employees that work less than 12 months a year will receive pro-rated amounts of personal leave. This leave must be used during the calendar year it is granted. Any personal leave not used by December 31st will be forfeited.
Family Medical Leave
Bristol Community College guarantees eligible employees the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for family or medical reasons ("FMLA Leave”). FMLA Leave will be unpaid unless the employee chooses to use accrued paid vacation if applicable, rescheduled time, or personal leave. An employee may utilize sick leave during or at the end of a leave if he or she qualifies consistent with existing College policy. For more detailed eligibility information, contact Human Resources.
