Personal Days

Full-time employees receive three paid personal days per year. These days shall be credited to the employee’s account at the beginning of each fiscal year and shall not be accumulative. Upon retirement or termination, a personal time payout will be equal to the total days accumulated paid out at the employee’s current daily wage rate.

Sick Leave

Each full-time employee who is employed to work at least 40 hours per week earns sick leave at a rate of 1.25 days per month for a maximum of 15 days of sick leave per contract year.

Part-time employees who have earned sick leave prior to the publishing of the college’s Policy & Information Manual are grandfathered at their current rate.

Unused sick leave entitlement is cumulative to a maximum of 260 days. The Payroll Department shall be responsible for the establishment of accrued sick leave balances for employees and for the maintenance of sick leave records.

Upon retirement under either the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System or State Teachers Retirement System, the employee shall receive payment of 1/4 of the number of unused sick days to the credit of the employee at the employee’s rate of pay at time of retirement up to a maximum of 38 days. Payment shall be made to an employee only once during his/her lifetime.
