All benefit-eligible employees earn sick leave at the rate of .0462 hours per hour worked (approximately eight hours per month for full-time employees). This applies to classified, professional, and faculty employees. All benefit-eligible faculty and staff are required to report sick leave absences through Time and Labor.
Annual leave accrual is based on employment classification and may only be used with supervisor approval, with reporting through Time and Labor.
Most faculty do not accrue annual leave as they are expected to take leave during breaks in the academic cycle.
Faculty on 12-month contracts and those who work over semester breaks earn vacation on the professional staff schedule.
