There may be times when it is necessary, due to severe weather conditions or other emergencies to close temporarily all or part of the College.

  3. All employees who would have been absent on paid leaves on the day(s) the College or a campus is closed are not entitled to day(s) off in lieu of the closure day(s).
  4. All employees who were on scheduled approved leaves (e.g. vacation, sick leaves, paid leaves of absence) will be compensated and have their time recorded as if there had been no closure of the College.
  5. All employees who are on an unpaid leave of absence or who are not scheduled to work on the day(s) the College is closed are not entitled to any additional remuneration or compensatory time off.
  6. Work study students will not be paid for College closure days due to provisions in the Work Study agreement.
  7. All absences due to weather conditions or other emergencies must be recorded on the weekly attendance reports.
  8. When the College remains open but with classes cancelled, employees are required to work their normal hours.
  9. Employees absent from work due to weather conditions or other emergencies will be required to use a vacation day, lieu time, a leave of absence without pay, or make up the missed time at a later date scheduled in consultation with the supervisor. Any exceptions to this policy must be authorized by the appropriate Vice-President.
