304 Personal Business Days [policy change as of July 1, 2010]
A full-time regular employee may use up to four days per fiscal year for personal business. Part-time regular employees who are scheduled to work 20 hours or more each week are entitled to personal business days on a prorated basis. Full-time part-year employees receive three personal business days; these days are prorated if they have a part-time schedule of more than 20 hours.
An employee should give his or her supervisor as much advance notice of the absence as possible. Personal business days do not accumulate from year to year.
Employees are eligible for paid personal business days after three months of continuous employment. However, supervisors may, at their discretion, permit a new employee to use personal business days earlier.
Personal business days cannot be used to extend a vacation except by mutual agreement of the employee and the employee's supervisor.
Personal days not taken are not counted in computing terminal vacation pay.
Phase-out of Personal Business Days [policy change as of July 1, 2010]
Effective 7/1/2010, M&P staff no longer receive personal business days.
