Guideline 4-8: Personal Business Leave

An employee may be allowed up to sixteen (16) hours of leave per year for personal business purposes not covered by sick leave or other policies. These hours may be used at the discretion of the employee, but not during in-service, registration, final-exam or graduation except by prior approval of the campus president. The personal business hours will be deducted from the employee's sick leave.

This policy is provided for those cases of personal business when an employee needs to be off work, but the absence is not covered under the comprehensive leave policy. An employee seeking personal leave is responsible for completing a request for leave form and submitting the completed form to their supervisor for approval. This should be accomplished at least two days prior to being absent from work, if at all possible. The personal business leave will be deducted from the employee's accumulated sick leave.
