If you are an hourly employee and work on a holiday, you will be compensated at double your hourly rate for all hours you work. Salaried and certain full time administrative employees receive six paid holidays annually. The recognized holidays are:
New Year's Day
Full-time hourly employees earn personal days after 90 days of employment based on the following schedule: one personal day on the first of January, March, May, July, September and November, or up to six personal days per calendar year.
Full-time salaried employees earn personal days after 30 days of employment based on the same schedule.
Full-time hourly employees accrue vacation hours based upon the average hours worked in each bi-weekly pay period and the employee’s years of full-time service. For example, if an employee has been a full-time hourly employee for two years, they are eligible for two weeks vacation time. If that employee averaged 72 hours per bi-weekly pay period the previous year, they would receive 72 hours (two weeks at 36 hours per week) of vacation. If an employee has been a full-time hourly employee for five years, and they worked an average of 64 hours per bi-weekly pay period the previous year, they would receive 96 hours (three weeks at 32 hours per week) of vacation time.
Full-time salaried employees are eligible for vacation based on the following schedule:
After six months One week
After one year One week
After two years Two weeks
After five years Three weeks
After ten years Four weeks
This benefit is for hourly employees. Hours held in the disability bank may be used to pay for absences due to personal illness that extend three or more scheduled workdays.
Full-time employees are given three paid days off in the event of the death of an immediate family member. Employees are eligible for this benefit upon hire.
Full-time salaried employees are eligible for short-term sick pay after 90 days of employment. Short-term sick pay is designed to provide income protection in case of illness or injury. Short-term sick pay can be used starting with the first day of any illness or injury lasting three or more scheduled days.
Employees are eligible for regular pay for scheduled time missed due to jury duty for up to three months.
