Vacation & Sick Leave

All regular full-time employees are entitled to vacation leave with pay according to length of service. All regular full-time employees earn sick leave at the rate of 3.08 hours biweekly for a total of 80 hours per year. (Fire Fighters earn sick and vacation leave at a slightly higher rate due to the number of hours they work.)

Accrued vacation pay will be posted to the employee's leave account on the first pay period of each month following the month in which it is earned. To be eligible to earn vacation pay in a month, the employee must work at least 10 days during that month.
