ATTACHMENT TO AGENDA ITEM IX.A POLICY CHANGE
Deleted language is lined-out.  New language is underlined.
 
5.5.2 VACATION
Vacation time accrues for full time employees (minimum 24 hours per week) from the first day of employment and can be used after the completion of 30 days of employment.  Vacation time must be accrued before it can be used.  The accrual factor is based upon a 40-hour work week.  This would be: five eight days for the first year, 10 days the second year, 15 days after five years and 20 days per year thereafter. Employees who work less than 40 hours will accrue vacation at the appropriate percentage of this rate.  There will be a limit of one year of unused vacation time earnings for the year that the vacation day is based upon. Unused vacation days will be paid out each December.  Vacation accrual will not be carried over, so that every year begins with a clean slate.  Unused vacation days may be carried over to subsequent years, with the proviso that no more days than 1.75 times the employee’s current annual accrual rate may be accrued. Vacation days may only be converted to a cash payout upon separation. RCR strongly encourages each paid employee to use vacation time each year.  The intent is 1) that each employee actually gets an annual rest, and 2) that prolonged absences not negatively impact RCR.  Exempt employees will accrue vacation hours based on actual hours worked.
 
[This policy change will take effect on January 1, 2018.]
