Personal Leave

Personal leave days may be used for any purpose, including vacation, sickness, or other business, upon giving proper notification and receiving approval.

Personal leave hours are earned by permanent employees to allow them to be absent from work and still receive their regular wages. Employees earn personal leave hours for each full month of work. The accrual rate is based upon length of service.
