Hourly employees are paid at regular time if the employee works a full shift the day before and the day immediately following the holiday or if the holiday falls within a vacation or sick period. Any employee on unpaid leave will not get holiday leave pay. All full-time employees, including employees still on probation and temporary, full-time employees, are eligible to receive holiday pay if they meet the above requirements. Specific dates for holidays are published at the beginning of each academic year.

Extended campuses will observe the federal holiday schedule specified by their respective host installation as paid holidays.

Vacation Leave

During the full-time employee's first calendar year of employment with Campbell University, paid vacation is earned at a rate of 6.67 hours per month of service after the employee has completed the sixty (60) day probationary period. NO paid vacation time may be taken during the employee's introductory period. All full-time employees (working a minimum of 32 hours per week) with 10 years, but less than 15 years of service will earn vacation at a rate of one (1) day per month. Employees with 15 or more years of service will receive vacation at the rate of 1.25 days per month.

One week of each employee's earned vacation must be taken at one time. The supervisor must approve all vacations. Employees may accumulate up to five (5) days of vacation. Each December 31, all accumulated vacation over five (5) days will be lost.

Employees who terminate with proper notice (as defined in the Employee Personnel Manual), will be paid for any vacation earned but not taken.

If a holiday observed by the University falls within an employee's vacation period, the holiday will not be counted as vacation time.

Vacation may be taken in no less than one-half day increments.

Sick and Bereavement Leave

It is the policy of Campbell University to provide permanent, full-time, non-faculty employees with protection against loss of earnings due to illness by providing a reasonable amount of sick leave.

Sick leave is earned at a rate of one (1) day per month beginning with the first full month of active employment following the completion of the employee's introductory period. Each employee may accumulate up to a maximum of 120 days of paid sick leave that can be used at any time during the employee's continued employment with the University.

Sick leave may be used to cover absences for actual periods of illness or a genuine medical emergency in the immediate family.

Reasonable sick leave may be taken in the event of the death of the following relatives: spouse, children, parents, brother or sister, grandparents, mother-in-law or father-in-law, brother-in-law or sister-in-law.

Upon separation of employment for any reason, all unused sick leave is forfeited.

Tuition Assistance
