Policy Statement

Regular full-time and part-time employees who serve on jury duty or as a witness in a civil or criminal lawsuit in state or federal courts are eligible for jury duty leave.

Employees on jury duty leave will be compensated by the College for regular work hours lost as a result of such service, provided that the employee offers valid proof of his summons for jury duty or subpoena to appear as a witness.

In the event of unusually long terms of service, the College reserves the right to stop earnings continuation.

Employees who are required to work on a regularly scheduled holiday shall be entitled to take a day of their choice as the holiday with pay, within ten calendar days following the actual holiday, unless specific arrangements are made by the employee with their supervisor. The employee must notify his immediate supervisor at least forty-eight hours in advance of the day which he/she intends to take his/her holiday, unless otherwise approved by the supervisor.
