Some employees may be required to work on a designated holiday. You will be advised by your supervisor if you are scheduled to work.

The College will attempt to accommodate an employee who wishes to observe non-Christian religious holidays.  However, the amount of holiday time off for observance of such holidays will not exceed the amount of time off allowed other employees.  Arrangements must be made through the Human Resources office at least two (2) weeks in advance.
