Personal Time

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.

Vacation Time

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
 

Disability Bank

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.

Bereavement Pay

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.

Short Term Sick Pay

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.
