## Vacation and Sick Leave Accrual for Part-Time Employees

Note: To be eligible the person must be a regular employee working at least 20 hours/week for a minimum of 36 weeks per year.

### Sick Leave for Exempt (monthly) and Non-exempt (weekly) Employees

For each month of service, a part-time employee accrues the number of hours equivalent to one "average day," that is, the normal hours per week divided by five.

• Normal Hours/WeekHours Accrued/MonthAccrued Over 12 Months
204.048.0 hours
214.250.4 hours
255.060.0 hours

### Vacation Time for Exempt (monthly) Employees

A part-time Professional/Administrative employee earns vacation at the same rate as a full-time person (e.g., 1 5/6 "days" per month), but the calculation is based on an "average day." An "average day" equals the normal hours per week divided by five. A simplified calculation method follows.

• Accrual Rate Average Days"  Per YearAccrual Calculation
1 5/6 days per month22Normal hrs/wk x .3667 = hrs earned/month
2 1/4 days per month27Normal hrs/wk x .45 = hrs earned/month

Example:
21 hrs/week (divided by 5= 4.2 hrs/average day)
21 hrs x .3667 = 7.7 hrs earned/month (x 12 = 92.4 hrs accrued/year)
(92.4 hrs/yr divided by 4.2 hrs/average day = 22 "average days" per year)

### Vacation Time for Non-exempt (weekly) Employees

A part-time Office, Clerical and Service employee earns vacation at the same rate as a full-time employee, but the calculation is based on an "average day." An "average day" equals the normal hours per week divided by five. A simplified calculation method follows.

• Accrual Rate"Average Days" Per YearAccrual Calculation
5/6 days/month10Normal hrs/wk x .1667 = hrs earned/month
1 1/4 days/month15Normal hrs/wk x .25 = hrs earned/month
1 2/3 days/month20Normal hrs/wk x .3333 = hrs earned/month
2 1/12 days/month25Normal hrs/wk x .4167= hrs earned/month

Example:
21 hrs/week (divided by 5= 4.2 hrs/average day)
21 hrs x .1667 = 3.5 hrs earned/month (x 12 = 42 hrs accrued/year)
(42 hrs/yr divided by 4.2 hrs/average day = 10 "average days" per year)

• Employees who begin work on or before the 15th of a month or who terminate on or after the 16th will receive credit for that month.
