Guideline 4-8: Religious Holidays

The College makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the religious beliefs of its employees. When an employee wishes to observe a religious holiday that is not listed as a college holiday, he/she provides his/her immediate supervisor with a written list of religious holidays to be observed during the semester and a written request for leave. These absences will be paid absences only if they are identified as personal business or vacation absences. Beyond these two absences, personnel are not paid if they are absent from their assignments for religious reasons.
