should call their supervisor. Where possible, arrangements will be made to provide these employees
with transportation to work. There will be no equivalent or compensatory
time for working on days the College is closed due to inclement weather.
If the existing or imminent weather conditions are sufficiently
severe to warrant not opening, opening late, or closing early an office or work
place, employees directly affected by such conditions will be excused from duty
without loss of pay or use of leave.
c. Employees who are late in arriving to work or request to leave
early because of severe weather conditions, when the College will observe normal
working hours, may be permitted to:
1. Make up time
lost from work
2. Charge time
lost to accrued compensatory time
time lost to accrued leave; otherwise, the time lost will count
as leave without pay.
4. Employees on a
regular day off or otherwise not affected when their office or
work place is closed because of severe weather conditions will
not receive additional time off or other considerations because
of the closing.
